Film Screening of "STONE STREET"

by Elspeth kydd

Saturday, Oct. 7 at 7:30 p.m. 

A free, public reception will be held after the screening.

This film is being shown in memory of its creator, Elsepth kydd. 2023 is the 10th anniversary of her passing. Dr. kydd was a UToledo film faculty member from 1993-2005. She was a robust advocate for film students and was instrumental in bringing the annual international conference of the UFVA (University Film and Video Association) to UToledo during her tenure. 

Description
STONE STREET documents the life and experiences of a Trinidadian diaspora family and their enduring connection to the long standing family home in Port of Spain. Through the intersecting journeys of this extended and extensive family, the filmmaker explores themes of home, belonging and identity in a life defined by the fragmentary nature of a migratory Caribbean culture. This experimental documentary combines a lyrical first person voice with a family archive of home made audio visual artifacts, interviews and events. As the documentary explores the fragmentary nature of Caribbean identity, it simultaneously celebrates the fragments of domestic memorializing found in home movies, videos and photographs. STONE STREET uses these various forms to evoke the experience of a complex and diverse Caribbean and Caribbean diaspora identity. #UToledoStoneStreetScreening
