Live & Dept - movie about Jamaican trade

Not really music related, but this movie is a must-see for all those who know Jamaica only from a tourists view. It explains how economy works for small and USA / World Bank - dependend countries like Jamaica. Full-length on googlevideo.

Utilizing excerpts from the award-winning non-fiction text "A Small Place" by Jamaica Kincaid, Life & Debt is a woven tapestry of sequences ... all » focusing on the stories of individual Jamaicans whose strategies for survival and parameters of day-to-day existence are determined by the U.S. and other foreign economic agendas. By combining traditional documentary telling with a stylized narrative framework, the complexity of international lending, structural adjustment policies and free trade will be understood in the context of the day-to-day realities of the people whose lives they impact.
