Life and Debt

Jamaica became an independent country from Great Britain in 1962. It is the land of sea, sand and sun ... but it is also a prime example of the complexities of economic globalization on the world's developing countries. Effectively portrays the relationship between Jamaican poverty and the practices of international lending agencies while driving home the devasting consequences of globalization. Based on "A small place" by Jamaica Kincaid. Director, Stephanie Black. 2001. 86 min.
