Black History Studies presents the West London Premiere screening of ‘Jamaica For Sale’ on Thursday 19th September 2019 @ Lexi Cinema.
The Caribbean is the region most economically dependent on tourism and Jamaica was one of the most indebted country in the world. Tourism is Jamaica’s Sacred Cow, heavily promoted since 1891 as the way to modernisation and prosperity it has tragically failed in its promises. Jamaica For Sale counters the dominant view that tourism is the saviour of the Jamaican people. Lively and hard hitting, with powerful voices, arresting visuals and iconic music, Jamaica For Sale documents the environmental, economic, social and cultural impacts of unsustainable tourism development. As Jamaica is irreversibly transformed by massive hotel and luxury condominium development, Jamaica For Sale both documents this transformation and is trying to turn the tide.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion on ‘how the diaspora can contribute to the economic development of Jamaica and the Caribbean?’
