Subject: [DOCFILMS-MATTER] 'Life and Debt' - Lexi Cinema, 20th September

Hi everyone, 

Just a quick note about Tipping Point Film Fund's next screening. Their last screening which was 'South of the Border' proved to be a popular event. I've attached the web flyer and there's more info below. Let me know if you'd like to go as I then may schedule it as an official meeting.

Best wishes,


'Life and Debt' ( + Panel discussion)

Jamaica, land of sand, sea and sun? and a prime example of the complexities of economic globalisation on the world?s developing countries.

With twenty-five years of ?help? from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank intended to bring Third World nations such as Jamaica into the fold of free market economies, these restructuring policies have crippled Jamaica?s efforts toward self-reliant development while enriching the lenders.

This scathing film is an unapologetic look at the new world order from the point of view of Jamaican workers and farmers, as well as government and policy officials.   Featuring interviews with former Jamaican Prime Minister Michael Manley and former President of Haiti Jean-Bertrand Aristide, Life and Debt portrays the relationship between Jamaican poverty and the practices of international lending agencies while driving home the devastating consequences of globalisation.

The film was made a decade ago and re-released in August 2010 by Axiom Films ? but it remains as relevant today as when it was first released.

To book: (Tickets are ?10 + booking fee)
