“Hero” Feature Docudrama

I had the pleasure of working as the Hair and Makeup Artist on this brilliant film! I worked in the style of the ’40s so the hair was a mixture of styles including victory rolls, buns and big brushed out curls. The makeup also represented the ’40s and worked with the role of the character I made up. The crew were such lovely people and I enjoyed getting to know the actors. I can’t wait to see the final result!…Kindly supported by title sponsor Republic Bank, HERO is a feature docudrama by international award-winning filmmaker Frances-Anne Solomon.It is inspired by the life of Trinidadian war hero, judge and diplomat Ulric Cross’ whose long life spanned key moments of the 20th Century including the Second World War, independence movements in Africa and the Caribbean, the rise of a new brand of Black leaders around the world, the coming of age of Caribbean and African societies in the eighties and nineties  – – incidents and shifts that defined our present reality. Ulric’s story intersected with that of many of the great leaders of his time, including George Padmore, CLR James, Kwame Nrumah and Julius Nyerere.

The film shows the sweep of history, from colonialism to indiependence, and the evolution of Pan Africanism, an ideology first created by Caribbean intellectuals, that aimed to unite people of African heritage worldwide in order to strengthen the resources of Africa.

“HERO explores not just the life, but also the dynamic and transformative times that Ulric Cross was born into. Ultimately, the film is about us, who we are as Caribbean people and as citizens of the world,” said Solomon.

HERO stars Nickolai Salcedo as Cross, Fraser James as George Padmore, and also stars Joseph Marcell, Jimmy Akingbola, and Rudolph Walker. The film is produced and directed by Frances-Anne Solomon, and co-produced with CaribbeanTales Worldwide Distribution, Timmy Mora’s Visual Art and Production and Christopher Laird’s Banyan Productions. The Associate Producer is Nicola Cross and the Executive Producer is Anne Marie Stewart.
