Party Done (2021)
Popular TV host, Ian Alleyne, uses viewer tips to try to make a dent in Trinidad's soaring murder and crime rate. But, will his controversial techniques put him at odds with criminals and the law?
For over a decade, murders, robberies and other violent crimes have soared in Trinidad and Tobago, leading to a massive change in the way that ordinary citizens live their lives. When a shocking daytime shooting happens, popular (if controversial) TV host, Ian Alleyne uses anonymous tips from his audience to track down the suspect. Alleyne’s TV show, “Crime Watch”, is the most watched crime programme in Trinidad & Tobago. The show is also watched throughout the Caribbean and streamed to large audiences worldwide on Facebook and Youtube. With police corruption leading to a distrust among citizens, the public would rather give their information to Alleyne anonymously, who then works with the police to apprehend the suspects – sometimes to his own detriment.
With unprecedented access to Ian Alleyne, his crew and studio, ‘Party Done’ reveals a portrait of a complicated man and a troubled nation.
