9. Mas Man (2010)

This New York Film Festival-winning short from Trinidad’s Dalton Narine is a truly eye-opening look at that cornerstone of Caribbean life, Carnival, that succeeds because the act of playing Mas is treated not so much as a social phenomenon as a proper artform. And,ย  in the person of the film’s subject, Peter Minshall, it’s one that inspires on the world stage as well as the local parade ground.
