Editorial Reviews

"Mas Man Peter Minshall" received nine nominations in 2010-2011 at film festivals on four continents, winning six awards for Best Documentary, Cinematography and Director in New York, Los Angeles, Columbus and Chagrin Falls, Ohio, South Africa and Trinidad and Tobago.

(Producer's note: The DVD includes a Bonus Feature in the Carnival band "Rat Race" by Peter Minshall.)

This is the final cut of a work about Peter Minshall. It is about a designer's hubris to author a new word in art, "Mas " (which overrides masquerade), to counteract the conformity and conservatism of Carnival in Trinidad in the 1970s. It's about Peter Minshall reinventing Mas as a cutting edge tool to enlighten spectators about the complexities of life - a bold move that, in due course, influences the Olympic Games to feature him as an artistic director in Barcelona, Atlanta and Salt Lake City.
There are so many textures to Peter Minshall's Carnival art, they all tie into a story line that essentially captures his muse, flair for costumery, as well as the enigma of a man whose main job seems to open confrontation between good and evil against the backdrop of the celebrations. His calling, as such, is to awaken themes about modern humanity that not only display a curious slant in art but also inform audiences that are privileged to discern his work.
The film focuses on Minshall's life and art, a tapestry woven from multiple threads that include his "masography" coursing through 26 years; his design and stage acumen; his Olympic Games contribution; the Carnival stage (the Mas) in Trinidad preparing him for the world stage (the Olympics); and his set pieces of political protest and entertainment provoking parallel emotions in major North American, European and Asian cities.
