MAS MAN. PETER MARSHALL, TRINIDAD CARNIVAL ARTIST. FESTIVAL CUT.
King Carnival Productions, 2009. 1st ed. DVD, Widescreen, 87 min., all regions. New The film examines Minshall's life and art, a tapestry woven from multiple threads that include his "masography" coursing through 26 years; his design and stage acumen; his Olympic Games contribution; the Carnival stage (the Mas) in Trinidad preparing him for the world stage (the Olympics); and his set pieces of political protest and entertainment provoking parallel emotions in major North American, European and Asian cities. The documentary is shaped into an avant-garde time/space structure commensurate with how Minshall interviews; a herky-jerky style delivered in an ancestral British tongue mixed with Caribbean colloquialisms.
