The slave uprising drama starring Danny Glover will close this year’s trinidad+tobago film festival (ttff) on Oct 1.
Tula: The Revolt is based on true events that took place on the island of Curaçao in 1795. Obi Abili and Jeroen Krabbé also star.
The English-language, Dutch-Netherlands Antilles co-production shot entirely on Curaçao and was written and directed by Jeroen Leinders.
“We are very pleased to have Tula: The Revolt be the closing night film of the Festival,” said ttff editorial director Jonathan Ali. “In particular, we note that it is based on historical events, and hope that when people see the film they will be inspired to learn more about Tula, the man.”
The ttff/13 runs from Sept 13-Oct 1 and as previously announced will open with the Caribbean premiere of Half Of A Yellow Sun starring Thandie Newton and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
