SYNOPSIS It is January 2006 and Brian MacFarlane’s carnival workshop is quiet and practically empty – littered with left-over costumes and a couple of hangers-on from last year’s carnival. As the days pass the atmosphere starts to change. One by one, carnival costume makers begin arriving at the workshop (mas camp) anticipating the release of designs and the work that’s to come for the 2006 band, Threads of Joy.
The Insatiable Season is a fun and intimate look at the creations, crises and passion of the MacFarlane camp as they produce a beautiful costumed band for Trinidad’s Carnival.
