A fascinating documentary from Trinidad and Tobago about the domination of Caribbean television by programs from the North, primarily the U.S. This film ambitiously weaves together interviews, indigenous poetry and music with clips from imported French and U.S. television programs to show how Caribbean viewers receive a distorted view of the world that alienates them from their own cultural heritage. Also included is a glimpse of how Cuba has tackled the problem and the U.S. response in the form of Radio Marti.

Awards: Best of Category, Caribbean Film & TV Festival
