Calypso Rose: Lioness of the Jungle
Trinidad & Tobago, 2011 85 mins. Dir. Pascale Obolo
Calypso Rose, born McArtha Lewis, is the calypso queen of the world. This is her extraordinary story, a moving tale of triumph over great adversity. We follow Rose from Paris, where she is recording an album, to her native Tobago and Trinidad, then to New York where she lives, and finally to her ancestral homeland, Africa. Along the way we see many facets of Rose and come closer to understanding the woman behind the public person.
Includes Q&A with the director Pascale Obolo
