"Life and Debt" documents the extremely negative effects "globalization" has
on the Jamaican economny and agriculture. Juxtaposing typical tourist views
with searingly challenging economic conditions of Jamaican natives, the
audience begins to see a side of this culture normally hidden away.
Hearing representatives from the International Monetary Fund and World Bank
talk, one recognizes the familiar rhetoric--administrative jargon which
obscures its callous action: look out for one's self first and
Well-known US companies are documented here as part of the problem. Their
motivation is to make a profit, period, no matter at what cost or human
American stockholders tend here to look at and be primarily concerned with
how many points their shares rise--"Life and Debt" shows the downside of
that rise. There's a lot more to life than merely being concerned about
one's self. This film cries out for us to hear the needy call of our
planetary brother and sister.
Capitalism and competition tend to be cold animals--and one buys into those
concepts because they're in place and operating . . . never stopping to
think that there may be an exploitative side to these activities.
Stephanie Black captures that side in this documentary. The tourists are
rightly there to have a good time, yet we cannot turn our backs on our
neighbors. Imposing grossly high interest rates and stipulations that cause
them to sink greater into debt each year is not aiding them. Unloosing our
subsidized powered milk on their marketplace while their unsold whole milk
must be poured down the drain is not being fair.
When rioters and demonstrators took to the streets there and in the US
against globalization, I wondered what it was all about. "Life and Debt"
helped provide a subsantive explanation. The film is not an entertainment:
it is a serious, thought-provoking film to inform.
As I sat in a near-empty movie house, with some people leaving before the
end of the film, I wondered where was the audience? I thought, are we not
all involved in this scenario? When we buy items "assembled in" Jamaica, do
we really realize what that means in terms of "free zone?"
When we delight in paying very low prices for items made in China, Japan,
Mexico, and the like, how does that really impact upon those countries'
workers? "Life and Debt" helps provide an answer.
I very much value this documentary, and look forward to obtaining the dvd
when released, to further ponder world economic check and balances and
rethink the entire concept of "globalization."
