Stone Street – A Diaspora Documentary from a home in Trinidad.
At 22 Stone Street in Port of Spain, Trinidad, stands a house, home to the Cherrie family for over 60 years. This absorbing film is an autobiographical portrait of the Cherrie family and its branches in the US, UK and Canada.
Mixing home movie footage, photographs, musical recordings and interviews with a lyrical first-person narration, Stone Street moves beyond a simple record of family life to become a layered exploration of identity, history, race, place and belonging.
Elspeth Kydd’s experimental documentary films have screened at festivals internationally and on public television in the US. Stone Street premiered at Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival, 2012 where it won the ACP award for Film that Best Epitomises Cultural Diversity.
She taught film studies and documentary practice at universities worldwide (University of Toledo, Ohio USA, University of the West of England, University of the West Indies) and is the author of The Critical
Practice of Film.
