Forged From the Love of Liberty

Forged From the Love of Liberty


Forged From the Love of Liberty is the national anthem of Trinidad and Tobago, adopted in 1962 upon T&T’s declaration of independence. In the following years, forged from this time of change and unrest, the filmmaker’s family suffered a curse. Forged From the Love of Liberty is a visual poem about this curse and two superstitions that surround it.
