Bells are ringing in the New Caribbean Cinema (NCC) camp as the
collective of filmmakers celebrates their latest victory in cinema.

“After a long and successful festival circuit, we are pleased to announce
that the 7 films comprising RING DI ALARM have been picked up for
distribution by another pioneering company whose mission is to bring
Caribbean cinema to audiences in the diaspora, worldwide.” Michelle
Serieux and Storm Saulter, the film’s producers said. “This company
definitely shares our commitment to Caribbean heritage and that
connection is evident even with the name they’ve chosen for their
enterprise: Studio Anansi. This draws on a lineage that reflects our
shared African roots in the character Anansi who is part of our
collective storytelling tradition.”

Based in New York City, Studio Anansi is the brainchild of Romola
Lucas, an entertainment attorney and producer, and her partner Justen
Blaize, a Director Of Photography. The duo also run the Caribbean Film
Academy and the popular blog Cine Caribes, whose screenings and
community events bring Caribbean films home to the diaspora in
Brooklyn, New Jersey and the greater Tri State area.

“We saw the film Missed at the BlackStar film festival in Philadelphia
and we knew we wanted to work with NCC.”  Romola Lucas said. “There is
definitely a market for films such as these in New York City, we are
overflowing with Caribbean immigrants who are hungry to keep the
connection to their homeland! We are thrilled to partner with NCC and
are very excited about exposing new work to our Caribbean family,

The news comes in anticipation of their Jamaican premiere Ring Di
Alarm at Carib Cinemas on August 13.The one night only event is
sponsored by Studio Anansi and Blackwell Rum. Tickets are available at
Base Kingston at a price of 1500 JMD.
