Director Sharon Lewis has launched a crowd-funding campaign to create the first caribbean canadian sci-fi feature film Brown Girl in the Ring: The Prequel. A coming of age story set in a futuristic ghetto, inspired by the award-winning novel by Nalo Hopkinson! The campaign Brown Girl in the Ring: The Prequel will run from June 15 - July 17, 2015 on indiegogo.com with the goal of raising $30,000.
Description: It’s 2048 in The Burn, a post-apocalyptic dystopia haunted by spirits from afro-caribbean folklore. What was once Toronto has been abandoned by the wealthy, and the poor have been walled in and left to fend for themselves. This coming of age story focuses on Ti-Jeanne who rebels against her grandmother’s mystical Caribbean teachings to run away with her first love. Haunted by warnings and predictions, Ti-Jeanne must obey her guardian spirit or someone will die.
