Word of Mouth: We need a HERO

History enthusiasts are in for a treat at this year’s installment of the Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival, as the new feature from award-winning Caribbean director and producer Frances-Anne Solomon makes its global debut. Starring Trinidadian Nickolai Salcedo in the title role, HERO: Inspired by The Extraordinary Life And Times of Mr Ulric Cross will be the opening night film at the 2018 festival. Inspired by a true story, and loosely based on Cross’s life, HERO examines the myth of the man known as the “most decorated West Indian of World War Two.”

Genevieve Jodhan: A Legacy of Change

In the end, Jodhan sees her legacy as something more outside herself than I would have guessed. “I see myself as a custodian for a company that has a very long history, and I would like to leave the company better than when I found it.” It’s a humble goal, but a sincere one. Genevieve Jodhan embodies the brand essence of Angostura with “big-heartedness, enrichment, and inclusiveness.” Her dedication and passion are evident, and it’s far from a surprise that a woman with this much verve was selected as the one to lead this legacy company into its next double century.
