Steelpan docudrama to open film festival

Pan! Our Music Odyssey, a docudrama about the steelpan, will have its world premiere when it opens the ninth edition of the trinidad+tobago film festival (ttff) on Tuesday September 16. The film, several years in the making, was written by Kim Johnson, the foremost pan researcher in TT. Johnson is the author of such books as The Illustrated Story of Pan and If Yuh Iron Good You is King: The Pan Pioneers of Trinidad and Tobago.

Belgium-born film-maker Jérôme Guiot – who has been awarded in France for his music video work with the pop artistes Stromae – directed the film. Barthélémy Fougea (who received the César, the French equivalent of the Oscar, for best documentary in 2014 for the film On the Way to School) and Jean Michel Gibert (Maturity Productions/ Caribbean Music Group) served as producers.

The writer, director and producers will be present to introduce the film.  “I always thought of TT as the place to unveil Pan! to the public,” said Gibert. “I am happy we will be doing so at the ttff, before the film travels abroad to other film festivals, theatrical releases, and network television.”  Eighty minutes long, Pan! Our Music Odyssey tells the epic story of pan, the only acoustic musical instrument invented in the 20th century.
