Film synopsis
The Blood and the Bois is a psychological spirit-drama about the restless chi of a downed stick fighter who is unable to egress until his death is avenged by his son and grandson. The bois usually brings blood from the head of a challenger, but along the road to avenging death, both the living and the dead must come to terms with hurts, inflicted upon one generation by the previous, before they arrive at a place of healing, transcendence and rest.
The Blood and the Bois is a dramatic sketch that brings Black Caribbean father-son relationships into sharp focus while challenging the viewer to reexamine intergenerational hurts and the need for healing in their own lives.
Directed by Sigmond Cromwell and produced by Naomi Howard.
