Every year on Carnival Monday at dusk, the blue devils come out to play in Paramin, high in the hills above Port of Spain. Carrying on a tradition that has been passed down for generations, battling devil tribes compete in a portrayal of the wild and grotesque. A Land so Far is a kaleidoscopic portal into the world of the blue devils, graphically and symbolically conveying its splendour and breaking the boundary between reality and surreality.
