Pulukaukau

United Kingdom 2002

Pulukaukau is an adaptation from an old Caribbean fairy tale set in the modern 21th century full of tragedy and heart, a glittering shower of pixie dust and a lot of water. The street-smart girl Pulukaukau takes us on a weird and wacky ride through the story of three generations of women, and the incestual chain of events that connects them.

Selected for the BFI British Film Institute.
