Life and Debt takes you beyond the gloss of the high rise tourist hotels and resorts into the heart of this diverse nation that is at its wits end. Stunning images and a relaxing camera style, a compelling and poignant voice over narrative penned by Jamaica Kinkaid based on her award winning book ?A Small Place?. The Soundtrack features Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, and Mutabaruka, who performs the title track.

"...the overall impression left by this devastating film is of the global
economy as a dog-eat-dog world where the usual culprits, the United States
and its multinational corporate clients, have the advantage."

- Stephen Holden ?NY TIMES

"To thousands of tourists, it is the happy island of rum,
reggae and sunshine. But a new film reveals how rich countries
and the IMF keep the Caribbean poor."

- Linton Kwesi Johnson ?The Guardian UK
