Jamaican master painter Barrington Watson will be the inspiration behind an upcoming documentary about his life.
Cinematographer Lennie Little-White is producing the documentary entitled ‘They Call Me Barrington” and states that Barry is the most outstanding painter in Jamaica.
The film is still in its early stages but it will get up close and personal with the 83 year old artist, showcasing Watson as a young artist as well as in his later years. Little-While has called Watson an inspiration to young artists.
Watson was born in Hanover and started out as footballer for Kingston College but his passion for painting brought him to the doorstep of the Royal College of Art in London, England. He returned to Jamaica in the early 1960s. “They Call me Barrington” will be just under an hour long and Little-White says he hopes to complete it by early next year.
