Mas Man

Mingling traditional Carnival elements with abstract ideas, Emmy Award winner Peter Minshall goes chic to chic with upper crust art in Trinidad’s annual spring festival. The film captures his flair for costumery and the enigma of a designer/artist whose main job seems to open confrontation between good and evil against the backdrop of the celebrations. Minshall’s mobile street theatre, comprising 2,500 masqueraders, eventually influences the Olympic Games to feature him as an artistic director for the Opening Ceremonies in Barcelona, Atlanta and Salt Lake City. Part of the CaribbeanTales Collection.
