A Caribbean Dream

Preview by Jack Foley

FOLLOWING the story of the Shakespearean classic A Midsummers Night’s Dream, A Caribbean Dream shows Theseus and Hippolyta returning Nationals, arriving back in Barbados to be married during Crop Over.

Using the island’s folklore, cultural history, and landscape, and portraying mixed race relationships using a Barbadian and British cast; the film’s Caribbean setting is the perfect backdrop for this tale of mysticism and chaos on the night before the Midsummer celebrations.

This traditional tale takes a twist with the creation of new characters where Mechanicals are re-imagined as Fishermen, and Bottom as a Black Belly Sheep, along with Birdman and a Changeling Boy.

Chaos and madness unfolds at night, exploring Caribbean folklore and culture. This is a unique and entertaining re-imagination of one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies.

The film is directed by Shakirah Bourne.
