Brown Girl Begins is a post-apocalyptic tale about a young black woman who is trapped in a world forced upon her. Ti-Jeanne (Mouna Touré), a reluctant priestess, must resurrect Caribbean spirits and survive a possession ritual to save her people. Set in 2049 on a forsaken island off the coast of Toronto, this Caribbean Afrofuturistic feature is inspired by Nalo Hopkinson’s award-winning novel, ‘Brown Girl in the Ring’.
