Prepare to Meet “The Mighty Grand Piton” by Wesley Louis

The animation crew at The Line in East London help director Wesley Louis explore his family’s Caribbean roots in a rollicking sci-fi adventure centered on Connie, a young British girl, and a mysterious giant robot.

From the Line: “The Mighty Grand Piton is the brainchild of Wesley Louis, whose parents were born in Saint Lucia before moving to the UK.

“Connie, whose character is based on an amalgamation of Wes’s nieces and nephews, is also an embodiment of his own experience of visiting the Caribbean. Specifically, the story references his memories of engaging with a culture and community that he grew up just hearing about.

“We also get a sense in this film what it was like seeing for the first time a landscape that could not be more different from where he was born in London.”
