This film is focused primarily on CARIFESTA 1981 (Links to an external site.) which was held in Barbados. It uses CARIFESTA as a central hub around which the filmmakers are attempting to make an argument about unity within the Caribbean region. With direct reference to the film write a two-page to three-page paper in which you respond to the following prompt
Prompt: In Family of the Caribbean, the filmmakers illustrate the importance of Caribbean popular culture. They use Caribbean music, visual arts, literature drama and dance to argue that, despite the great diversity within the region, the people of the Caribbean are one people. Despite this overarching argument, however, some of the tensions within the region are also apparent.
By “direct reference” I mean you MUST make clear reference to elements from the film and use them as evidence – explain how they are evidence of what you are discussing. In making the references, you should take note of the moment in the video when the evidence appears either by noting where it occurs in the structure of the documentary or taking note of the numbers on the counter at the bottom of the page.
Your essay MUST use the following headings and they MUST be in bold type.
In this section grab your reader’s attention. State in one, at most two, sentences the thesis of your argument, i.e. state your response to the prompt.
In this section, make reference to the lecture in the first class and explain why ‘culture’ generally and ‘popular culture as folk culture’ specifically are important to a society.
