In what has turned out to be a phenomenal year for writer-director Storm Saulter, his debut feature film Better Mus’ Come has secured its place as the only feature film representing Jamaica this year at the prestigious Bahamas International Film Festival.
The festival has distinguished itself as the Caribbean’s premiere international film festival. It boasts Hollywood patrons such as Sean Connery and Nicholas Cage. This year, it features a line-up in which the 1970s-based political thriller Better Mus’ Come is one of only two feature films from the Caribbean in this year’s roster.
Since its opening in Jamaica, Better Mus’ Come has been making waves across the region and the international community. Its most recent conquest was the highly coveted Viewer’s Choice Award for Best Narrative Feature Film at the recently concluded Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival.
Hailed by Jamaica’s leading national newspaper, The Gleaner, to be “the new benchmark for Jamaican films”, and by BillBoard Magazine as ” … a riveting account of Jamaica’s deadly late 1970′s political tribalism”, Better Mus’ Come now heads to the Bahamas to take part in the prestigious Bahamas International Film Festival (BIFF). Better Mus’ Come will be screened at the JFK Galleria Cinema on Friday, December 2 at 1:15 p.m., and again on Saturday December 3 at 12:30pm.
All BIFF screenings held at the JFK Galleria will be open to the public at no cost, so all my Bahamian peeps go check it out!
