NOKA Keeper of Worlds Written and Directed by: Shaun Escayg TRT: 23 min (Trinidad & Tobago/USA)
NOKA Keeper of Worlds is a coming of age story centered on an eight-year-old American boy named Gabriel. Gabriel suffers from a rare form of schizophrenia and like his now deceased grandfather, is a timid recluse. While at a wake in honor of his grandfather, he encounters an old 'friend' of the family, who challenges his concept of reality. The man named Midnight gives Gabriel his grandfather's greatest possession, his journal. This journal opens a portal into a parallel world filled with creatures and ancient mystics, challenging his beliefs and empowering the young boy.
