The King is Not My Cousin


In 2017 Elzea Foule Aventurin, the author of the book Sunny Karukera, Stranded Guadeloupe (1980), engaged in a series of interviews with her granddaughter, filmmaker Annabelle Aventurin. Together they trace—not without malice—a family history, sailing from one side of the black Atlantic to the other. A history of silences, pride, and revolt.
