5:15 pm Aun Aqui/Still Here
“This no-budget silent short film is our tribute to the disappeared and their families, as well as a call to non-violent activism. No ideology can justify kidnapping, so for this short i chose to leave the kidnappers and their motivations in the shadows and simply cast a brief light on the victim and her desire for freedom, a right of every human being.” -Andres Useche

Slavery may have been the catalyst, but culture and passion formed this sound in Trinidad & Tobago. The steelpan (steel drum) can take the claim of being the only acoustic instrument invented in the 20th century. However, this sound not only moves people today, but it paralleled the island’s history of colonization and the demand for independence.
The first section of this two-part film highlights the precursors of the steelpan and the creation of the instrument until it gained international recognition in Britain in 1951. Interviews from steelpan legends, such as Ellie Mannette, Sterling Betancourt, Cliff Alexis and Ray Holman, are included.
