The debut feature film from Brighton-based Robbie McCallum, Atlantic Heart was filmed in Cape Verde, Africa, and is the first full-length narrative feature ever shot in the rare Kriolu language. Against the tropical backdrop of the Mardi Gras Carnaval, teenage siblings Lucas and Telma struggle to survive the seedier side of island life. When naive Lucas loses his dog, he begins a journey through the bars, backstreets and bordellos of Cape Verde that will challenge his hopes and change the course of his life.
