Brown Girl in the Ring by Nalo Hopkinson is like nothing you’ve read before — it’s an intense tale of Caribbean magic and possession, set in a dystopian near future. It features characters so vivid, they live on in your head. And a story that keeps you frantically reading to see how it turns out. And now, it’s becoming a movie!

Film-maker Sharon Lewis is seeking around $25,000 to make a full-length movie prequel to Brown Girl in the Ring, focusing on the character of Ti-Jeanne. Here’s her plot synopsis: “In an abandoned futuristic ghetto haunted by caribbean spirits and the posse, young Ti-Jeanne’s spirit demands she obey, or someone will die.”
