One Hand Don't Clap (12A*) + Q&A with Director Kavery Kaul

Snapshots: Caribbean Cinema Up Close

Still from One Hand Don't Clap

Join us for a special preview of 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. 

We are delighted to also be joined by director Kavery Kaul for a post screening Q&A hosted by curator of the Snapshots season Patrice Robinson.
