A collection of fuzzy photographs, a conversational interview and typed words link together in Sixteen to tell the story of filmmaker Vashti Harrison’s Trinidadian mother from her childhood through her eventual move to New York City. As the mother recounts memories of her upbringing in a traditional Hindu family, snapshots of her life fade in and out of frame, capturing the poignant recollections of a woman looking to the bittersweet past.
