Local filmmaker Frank E. Flowers is a native son of whom the islands are very proud. His full-length feature film “Haven,” starring the likes of Orlando Bloom, Zoe Saldana and Anthony Mackie, brought the magic of Hollywood to Cayman, with the cast reuniting for CayFilm 2016 at The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman.
His latest creation, “Tocsin,” once again highlights the Cayman Islands with actors Garrett Hedlund (“Tron: Legacy,” “Mudbound,” “Unbroken”) and Juno Temple (“The Dark Knight Rises,” “Maleficent,” “Black Mass”) joining the local cast comprised of Shane Allenger, Chad Bodden and Margaux Maes.
The film is a 12-minute short and tells the story of a young musician who travels to a remote island studio in search of inspiration. While attempting to overcome his creative block, he discovers a much darker secret hidden within the shallows.
“Tocsin” premiered at the Camana Bay Cinema on June 15 with three showings and an after-party, giving audience members a chance to mingle with the cast and crew. Flowers was encouraged by the fact that many who saw the film asked if there was a plan to expand it to a feature-length project or maybe to film a sequel.
“Most people wanted to see more, which is great,” says Flowers, who revealed that it took about six months to make, from concept to filming.
