VIDEO: Andrew Millington, Filmmaker, Part Two of Two (UWItv)

Part two of my interview with Barbadian independent filmmaker, Andrew Millington, for the University of the West Indies television programme, Research Room.

This episode begins with a discussion of his recently re-released second feature film, "Zora's Dream",

He touches on themes of the spiritual realm, memory, and struggle, not the least of which is the struggles of independent movie-making in the Caribbean.


VIDEO: Andrew Millington, Filmmaker - Part One - From UWItv

First, full disclosure: Andrew Millington is an old friend from our days at Howard University. There he sat at the feet of the renowned Ethiopian director Haile Gerima, and alongside a fellow fine filmmaker in-the-making, Yao Ramesar of Trinidad and Tobago.

We explore those relationships, Andrew's journey in independent film ("Guttaperc"; "Zora's Dream") and his art that has a sharp political (small p; big ideas) edge in an edition of Research Room, from UWItv, the new television service of the University of the West Indies, which streams online and is transmitted on the Caribbean Media Corporation's international channel, CaribVision.


VIDEO: Some Thoughts on Investigative Journalism and Broadcast Media in the Caribbean

A video version of a presentation delivered in March 2017 at a workshop on investigative reporting and financial journalism organised by Jamaica's transparency organisation National Integrity Action (NIA) in partnership with the Caribbean Media Institute and the Association of Caribbean Media Workers.

The presentation gives some of my thoughts on the state of play in accountability journalism in the English-speaking region, as it plays on television screens. (37 minutes)
