Background:

Victory Films Entertainment (VFE) is a duly registered film company on Montserrat. It was born out of a need to create local/Caribbean movies utilizing local and Caribbean talent. Victory Films Entertainment is dedicated to producing wholesome, educational, and inspirational family movies. To date, without proper equipment or crew, VFE has been able to produce two short films, namely: Dangerous Charade (29mins) and Clash of Cultures (37mins).

Dangerous Charade:

Dangerous Charade is based on a short story from the book ‘Anthology of Weekly Writing Prompts’ and features an elderly woman Anna, who is being ill-treated at Sunny Villa – Home for the Aged. Anna’s teenage granddaughter Amanda, faces many indecisions since the Matron seems to be quite a pleasant woman. To satisfy herself as to whether or not her grandmother really is being abused, she convinces her best friend Nadia, that they should disguise themselves as old women and get admitted into Sunny Villa. How this short movie ends is a must-see!

Clash of Cultures:

Clash of Cultures captures the misunderstandings which can arise based on people’s background, geographical locational, traditions and beliefs. Mr. Glendon is a wealthy Montserratian who has had children with women from various Caribbean islands. He also has a daughter from Portugal and his first son is from Nigeria.

Chukudi is haughty and looks at women with disdain. In Nigeria, the first son of any man automatically inherits his father’s wealth, no Will is necessary. Thus, Chukudi travels to Montserrat for the sole purpose of inheriting his father’s vast fortune. But his troubles have only just begun. He plagued by terrible nightmares, and his half-sister Doreen is the bane of his life! She refuses to hand over her father’s company because she has been managing it for the longest while. She treats him like a pesky stranger who is constantly meddling in her affairs.

Tempers flare, threats are made, and the content of the Will causes major concern to everyone. In the midst of all of this confusion and dread, the truth about Mr. Glendon’s death is exposed! You have to see this movie to believe it! Both shorts were premiered on Montserrat in January and shown again in March of 2017.

Reader Reviews

  • Catherine… it’s a fight to focus on my own work and stay away from that book of yours! Lol. You are a great Story-teller. Your writing, structurally, is extremely sound. Very autobiographical of course. I’m at a cliff-hanging point where Kyla and Derek are in Barbados …. This would make a riveting LIFETIME movie! You are a wonderful Writer! I have found a new respect for you as a Christian woman. You are a woman who have fought with your inner conflict between the truth of life and the expectations of holding to “God”. Your book is MORE than a novel. It is a testimony! Respects.

  • Dear Catherine, I absolutely love this book FIRE ON MONTSERRAT! Your writing is smooth. You handle your flashbacks expertly. I would have preferred an indented typesetting instead of the block form, however. The type size should have been larger, and the chapters should ALL have started on a left sided, odd-numbered page. All of this however, are typesetting things and in NO WAY takes away from the riveting story you tell. I feel this book should be submitted to one of the really big publishers. I see FIRE ON MONTSERRAT taking off in Europe and even here in the USA. I particularly loved the scene when Kyla was in the bathroom and stepped out and saw Derek. Beautifully written! You were able to generate that sensuality with such sweet economy. You are good!! I will assist you wherever I can to ensure that FIRE ON MONTSERRAT reaches as far as it can and then some!
