Across the Caribbean, late-night Carnival celebrations kick off with J’ouvert, an anything-goes street party fêting the darker side of life. This lively short reveals Brooklyn’s own lesser-known version, which precedes the West Indian Day Parade: a 3 a.m. outpouring of percussion, music, costumes, dance, and history that brings together New York City’s West Indian community. 

Followed by by East Punk Memories
