A Wondrous Film by Powys Dewhurst

Director: Powys Dewhurst
DIRECTOR: Powys Dewhurst
I met director Powys Dewhurst back in 2007 at the Leda Serene Films office and was happy in the moment to meet a fellow Dominican. My nationalistic shallowness aside, it took about a year later, after seeing his film Where Do White People Go When the Long Weekend Comes? The Wondrous Journey of Delroy Kincaid at the CaribbeanTales Film Festival, for me to realize that he is an exceptionally gifted filmmaker and storyteller.


I love great tales told through a child's eye, and his short has such a beautiful and compelling narrative that's told with a sensitivity, which, until then, I'd never seen so lovingly expressed by a man — he exposed his heart. And it still gives me wonderful warm chills up my spine when I think about it. Thankfully, Rany Ly put together The Making of Where Do White People Go When the Long Weekend Comes? — a great backgrounder about Powys' film. And it's just as nice:
