Moko Jumbie

A Gothic Caribbean love story... Amidst the ruins of a coconut plantation in rural Trinidad, a displaced girl seeking her roots is drawn to a young fisherman who shares her desire to look beyond. Their taboo attraction grows despite family disapproval, political turmoil and mysterious hauntings from ancestral spirits.

Moko Jumbie is supported by the Canon Filmmaker Award from Film Independent and directed by Vashti Anderson, an alum of NYU's graduate film program. The film was shot by Shlomo Godder, whose previous work includes Una Noche (2014 Independent Spirit Award Nominee, Best First Feature).
