Life and Debt

Life and DebtUtilizing excerpts from the award-winning non-fiction text A Small Place by Jamaica Kincaid, Life and 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.

The film opens with the arrival of vacationers to the island-- utilizing Ms. Kincaids text as voice-over, we begin to understand the profound contrasts behind the breathtaking natural beauty of the island. The poetic urgency of Ms. Kincaids text lends a first-person understanding of the legacy of the country's colonial past, and to it's present day economic challenges.

For example, as we see a montage of the vacationer in her hotel, voice-over: When you sit down to eat your delicious meal, it's better that you don't know that most of what you are eating came off a ship from Miami.

Nothing has changed from the Roman empire to today.
Richer and more powerful nations invade weaker nations.

But many "superpowers" have risen and fallen over time: Romans, Greeks, Assyrians, Babylonians, Russians, and many more.

The fall is usually triggered by the decline in moral values.

Someone identified the seven steps these great powers go thru:

1. The age of outburst (or pioneers).
2. The age of conquests.
3. The age of commerce.
4. The age of affluence.
5. The age of intellect.
6. The age of decadence.
7. The age of decline and collapse.

Weak nations can learn from their oppression and turn the situation around.

An excellent book on this: "The Obstacle Is the Way: The Timeless Art of Turning Trials into Triumph" []
