Xplore the World and Komonopromo are hosting the world premiere of Panomundo Part 2: Pan Worldwide on Friday, November 24, 2017 from 6:00PM to 9:00PM at the National Library and Information System Authority (NALIS) in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad. It is a three-hour event that will feature a steel band performance, recognition of pan legends, and a Q&A with award-winning filmmakers Keith Musaman Morton and Charyzze Tia Harper. It will start with a screening of Part 1, followed by an intermission, and Part 2—which includes the Q&A, pan legend recognition, and the steel band performance.
Panomundo is feature-length documentary, told in two sections, about steelpan history and its global influence. Part 1: The Evolution of the Steelpan, which was released in London in 2015, focuses on steelpan’s inception in Trinidad and Tobago until its international recognition at the Festival of Britain in 1951. Part 2: Pan Worldwide, focuses on the instrument’s impact in Canada, Japan, Nigeria, Switzerland, United Kingdom and the United States.
“We have been working on this film for over five years and it has been our dream to have the world premiere of Part 2, where the instrument was born,” says Harper, the Trinidadian-American producer of the documentary.
This is an invitation-only premiere. Seating is limited. To attend, RSVP to Leslynne Matthews: 868-374-6605. View a two-minute trailer of Panomundo and be sure to visit Panomundo’s Facebook page for more information: https://www.facebook.com/panomundo
