On The Map
The film debunks the myth of a unified, “laid back” Caribbean culture by exposing how Caribbean people treat themselves as ‘other’. By questioning the notion of a merged Caribbean, the film asks difficult questions: Have regional institutions failed to advance integration? Will political leaders sacrifice sovereign power for a shared power under increasing regional governance? Is the CSME interested in the lives and dreams of poor, unskilled Caribbean nationals?
Includes interviews with: Mas man Peter Minshall; poet Kamau Brathwaite; playwright/performer Michael Gilkes; and, musician Wendell Manwarren, among others.
