2019 was quite the year for Unfinished Sentences. After screening in Trinidad and Tobago cinemas, the film moved on to premiere in the United States of America, The Bahamas, and Argentina where it won a festival award!
In February 2019, the documentary feature screened at the third annual Island House Film Festival in The Bahamas. In an article from the National Art Gallery of Bahamas website, Dr Ian Bethell-Bennett of The University of The Bahamas says, “Brown narrates most effectively the story of her father, Wayne Brown and his relationship with her in particular but also the pieces that come together to form their family relationships. It is a pessimistic relationship between what is there and what is absent but not really absent.”
The journey did not stop there, however. The following month, the film was awarded for ‘Best Editing’ in the International Documentary Competition at the FICSUR International Film Festival in Tierra del Fuego, Argentina!
To round off a stellar campaign, the film went on to have its U.S. premiere on June 1st, 2019 at the Roxie Theatre, during the 18th Annual San Francisco Documentary Festival. Just a few days later, it screened on the east coast, at AFI Silver Theatre in Washington DC, thanks to the DC Caribbean FilmFest.
