Coming to Super Channel on Dec. 1, with a limited, one-night only theatrical run tonight, Nov. 29.
For my podcast The Filmcraziest Show, I was able to speak with the writer and director of She Paradise, Maya Cozier, about putting together the film. She talks about herself being part of a TV dance group like this one and drawing from those experiences, filming in Trinidad, bringing the short film to feature length, highlighting the dance of Soca, and talking about the character of Sparkle and Onessa Nestor’s performance as the lead character.
