[OPIRG-EVENTS] "Life and Debt" - great film at the Bytowne

For those who didn't get a chance to see the preview last November 
18, or who want to see it again...

Playing from May 20 to May 25 at the
Bytowne Cinema in Ottawa (http://www.bytowne.ca):


Jamaica - land of sea, sand and sun. And a prime example of the
complexities and dangers of economic globalization for the world's
developing countries. Utilizing Jamaica as an example of a country which
has been under the tutelage of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and
other international lending institutions for nearly twenty-five years,
this searing film dissects the "mechanism of debt" that is destroying
local agriculture and industry in Third World countries while
substituting sweat-shops and cheap imports. With a voice-over narration
written by Jamaica Kincaid, adapted from her non-fiction book A Small
Place, LIFE AND DEBT is an unapologetic look at the "new world order"
from the point of view of Jamaican workers, farmers, and government and
policy officials who see the reality of globalization from the ground
up. With music by Mutabaruka, Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers,
Sizzla, Bob Marley, Buju Banton, Yami Bolo. For more information on this
