We welcome our senior audience to watch the 4K restoration of the electric documentary directed by Kavery Kaul.
A film digitally restored by the Academy Film Archive and the Women’s Film Preservation Fund with support from the Leon Levy Foundation, One Hand Don't Clap explores the importance of Calypso music and the community around it.
In the run up to the exciting crowning of Trinidad's 1986 Calypso Monarch, we follow iconic Calypsonians such as Calypso Rose and Lord Kitchener as they discuss their early careers, and gain access to a beloved genre of music, focusing on the history and the intergenerational aspects of Calypsonian culture.
With fantastic live performances of songs such as Pan in A Minor and Solomon, One Hand Don't Clap is not one to miss.
Following this preview, One Hand Don’t Clap will screen at Cinema Rediscovered (26 – 30 July, Bristol).
Please note that this screening includes lyrical content referring to domestic abuse.
