MITP JA Cocktail Cinema presents Caribbean Women in Film. An artist talk and screening featuring Christene Browne with her feature Another Planet plus a program of shorts.

Christene Browne's Another Planet (1999) is a coming-of-age dramedy in which a Toronto teen, Cassandra Jones (Sandy Daley), explores her African roots. Cassandra has a very active imagination and a unique view of the world. She finds her ideals tested while working on a Quebec farm, where she meets a worker from Mali (Tiemoko Simaga). ANOTHER PLANET was screened at the 1999 Vancouver Film Festival and won the Best Film Prize at the Black International Cinema, Germany.

Originally from St. Kitts, she studied film at Ryerson University and started her own production company, Syncopated Productions, in 1990. Her award winning film, "Them That's Not," was the fourth film in the National Film Board of Canada's Feminization of Poverty series.
