11th Annual St Barth Film Festival Cinema Caraibe

Strong showing

of Cuban film and

more short films on menu

created in 1996 by two Amer-
icans who are passionate
about cinema -Ellen Lam-
pert-Gr6aux and Joshua Harrison, in
conjunction with islander Rose-
mond Gr6aux, the St Barth Film
Festival "Cin6ma Caraibe" is cele-
brating its eleventh anniversary next
week. Since its creation, the goal of
this event is an important cultural
statement for the island: to allow
the residents of Saint-Barth to dis-
cover films made by regional film-
makers, as well as films about
Caribbean people, places, and polit-
ical issues.
Faithful to this tradition, the llth
edition of the festival, which takes
place from April 25-30 at A.J.O.E.
in Lorient, will present three recent
Cuban films, marking the festival's
ongoing commitment to the cinema
movement on an island still under
American embargo. This year's
crop of Cuban cinema includes Viva
Cuba (2005) by Juan Carlos Crema-
ta, Habana Blues, shot in 2004 by
Benito Zambrano, and Suite
Habana by Fernando P6rez. Two
other feature films are on the roster:
Santo Domingo Blues, a documen-
tary about the popular bachata
musicians of Santo Domingo, by
American filmmaker Alex Wolfe;
and Pluie d'Espoir (Rain of Hope)
by Haitian filmmaker Jacques Roc,
based on the story of Toussaint, a
young peasant from the Haitian
countryside who seeks to make it in
the city of Port-au-Prince.

Short films open
the screenings

The 2006 festival will be a little dif-
ferent than past years in short films,
mostly by young filmmakers from
the region, will be shown before
almost every feature film. "With
their films as part of the official

program, these filmmakers have the
opportunity to reach a broader audi-
ence," explains Ellen Lampert-
Gr6aux. Letter to Irene by Tony
Coco-Viloin from Guadeloupe (who
returns to the festival for the third
year) will be shown as a special
preview before the Haitian film,
Pluie d'Espoir by Jacques Roc. La
Noiraude is a 29' short by two film-
makers originally from Martinique,
and who are also sisters, Fabienne
and V6ronique Kanor. It will be
screened before the double docu-
mentary program of Santo Domingo
Blues by Alex Wolfe and 15 Lann6
Mizik by Janluk Stanislas, a chroni-
cle of the 15-year career of musi-
cian Dominik Coco from Guade-
loupe. Monsieur Etienne, shot by
Yann Chayia in Martinique, will be
shown before Habana Blues.

Finally, in tribute to the Transat
Ag2r, the transatlantic boat race
scheduled to arrive at the tail end of
the week, festival organizers con-
cocted an evening with two 52-
minute documentaries about the
sea. The first, Another World, by
Steve Moreau, tells the story of two
young men, Frenchman S6bastien
Lefebvre, and Englishman Jeremy
Hinton- who rowed across the
Atlantic. The second documentary
is by C6dric Robion, a young film-
maker based in Saint Barth. Entitled
Expedition Prototype, and based on
an expedition of the same name, it
follows the adventures of three
local men, a trio of artists/sailors,
including Stanislas Defize, Marc de
Rosny, and Yan van den Haute, who
set sail from Saint Barth as far as
Patagonia. Their expedition lasted
nine months aboard the sailboat,

Pluie d'Espoir is a movie based on the story of Toussaint, a
young peasant from the Haitian countryside. His instinct for
survival is strong. He has come to Port-au-Prince not only to
survive, but also to strive with dignity and achieve a place for
himself, his family, and the coworkers he left behind. On the
road to his destiny, he encounters many obstacles. He learns
about city life, modern inventions, and technology. He devel-
ops relationships that bring joy and pain to his life.

Director: Steve Moreau, French with English subtitles
Another World tells the incredible story of two young men:

hii.,lici. Lefebvre, a Frenchman aged 27, and Jeremy Hinton,
an Englishman aged 23. Coincidence and confidence in each
other brought them together. They had only known each other
for a few hours, spoke different languages, and had different
approaches to navigation and life in general: Jeremy, a sailor...
cii,.,lici., an oarsman. Jeremy had never touched an oar in his
life: clhii.,lic.,I had to teach him a lifetime of rowing in half an
hour, the day before their departure together. On October 22,
2003 at seven o'clock in the :i. !iilli they set forth from the
island of La Gomera on one of the most difficult sporting
events in the world: crossing the ocean by rowboat.

Director: Janluk Stanislas
Everyone in Guadeloupe knows that musician Dominik Coco
is celebrating his 15 years in the business. To mark the occa-
sion, Dominik Coco and his group, Karibbean Koumbea, cut
"Live-la," an album recorded live in concert on the many stages
of his recent tour from Guadeloupe and Martinique to Domini-
ca, Puerto-Rico, B6nin, Guyana, and France. The story of his
success today, as well as during the period he performed with
Volt-Face, is seen on the DVD that accompanies the album,
which includes numerous interviews with Dominik Coco and
members of his entourage, as well as music video clips and
excerpts from concerts.

Director: Cedric Robion
On August 24, 21, 1 4, St. Barth6lemy Day, the sailboat, Proto-
type, set off on an unusual adventure. Aboard were two visual
artists and a sailor, soi iii, off for a Travel-Art voyage to the tip
of South America. They crossed the Caribbean Sea, sailed
through the Panama Canal, and set off for the Galapagos, East-
er Island, and Patagonia, returning to Saint Barth after nine

months at sea. In association with Gallery to.b.art, numerous
artistic projects were part of this expedition, making it a work
of art in and of itself. Robion's documentary film captures part
of this incredible journey made by Stanislas Defize, Marc de
Rosny, and Yan van den Haute.
"We are sailing in pursuit of our dreams, pushed to go beyond
the i,,',ii,,. ., that we already have acquired and to learn
..i ,, t, ie,- new. We believe that the discoverer possesses a taste
for the creative, just as the creator has for discovery. It is under
this banner of creativity that we envisioned this journey. We
wanted to make our i ,*.. into a work of art. That was the
idea for Travel-Art." Stanislas Defize

Mambo Media (USA 2003), Director: Alex Wolfe
Spanish with French subtitles

Santo Domingo Blues is the story of the guitar playing singer-
songwriter Luis Vargas and bachata, the guitar blues of the
Dominican Republic. The film is a :,,., ii,-. sexy, often hilari-
ous tribute to the unsung heroes that have transformed bachata
from its roots in the Dominican underworld to a source of
national pride. It's a heart-felt immigrant success story filled
with Caribbean humor, wild dancing and k-li d iiful iiiusi This
is the first feature film for Alex Wolfe, who has won many
awards for his short documentary and narrative films, including
an Emmy, a Kodak award and the Grand Jury Prize at the Long
Island Film Festival. He grew up in Puerto Rico and much of
his work deals with Latin American and Caribbean Film.

Letter to Irere (Lettre ;)
Kontras Productions (Guadeloupe, 2006)
Director: Tony Coco-Viloin
A soldier with a degenerative disease survives, in a recovery
room, thanks to an odd machine. There is not much time before
the machine stops, but just how much time? His life hanging in
the balance, frightened, he tries to talk about his fear to the one
he loves and hopes to see again one day. If he doesn't get better,
there is only one final possibility: The Transfer, a curious opera-
tion that consists of removing his entire life memory from his
mind and emptying it into a robot responsible for archiving the
history of the world. Adapted from a text by Daniel Maragnes,
with a scenario by Gerty Dambury and Tony Coco-Viloin, Letter
to Irene represents a new collaborative writing experience in
Guadeloupe. (Rosemond Gr6aux and Jeanne-Marie Gr6aux from
Saint Barth are extras in the film.)


11h edition of World Book

Day on Sunday April 23

Initiated by UNESCO in
1995, World Book Day
marks its 1lth anniver-
sary on April 23, and will
be celebrated for the first
time in Saint Barth this
year. Launched by a group
of book lovers, the local
event will take place on
Sunday, April 23 from
9:00am to 1:00pm in front
of the Wall House munici-
pal museum. Various activi-
ties -bookstores stands,
readings, illustration of
texts...- will be held to help
promote the diffusion of
books, and encourage
everyone, and especially
young people, to enjoy the
pleasures of reading, and to
salute the considerable con-

tribution that authors make
to the ,i.'ughl process and
to universal culture. There
will also be a book
exchange, with books in
French and in English,
organized by Carol Ann
,iI.' 'I i7.75.37) and Marie-
Blanche L6d6e
(0590.27.74.19). The idea
is simple: you bring your
books on April 23 and
trade- or sell- them. If
you would like to donate
your books to the event,
please call one of the
organizers before April 23
so they can pick them up.
Celebrate Book Day in
Saint Barth... Sunday,
April 23!

n agreement was
signed on Monday,
April 10, between
the directors of GEBE, the
company that produces
electricity in Sint Maarten,
EDF, the electric company
for Saint Martin and Saint
Barth, and Anglec for
Anguilla. The idea behind
this "Memorandum of
UlidllCi.iiiinlhig" is to con-
nect the four electricity sys-
tems on the three islands in
order to reduce loss of serv-
ice and to increase autono-
my. According to the press
release sent out by the EDF
service for the Guadeloupe
archipelago, this agreement
marks "the beginning of a
detailed outline for the
project that will be based
on the following points: an
evaluation of the cost of the
work that needs to be done;
the financing structure for
the project; a study of how
the energy would be
shared; and the shared
responsibilities for the
interconnected systems." In
addition, the press release

states that after this initial
study, the three companies
should be ready to sign a
Joint Development Agree-
ment, which is a financial
partnership agreement that
would allow the work to
begin on the interconnec-
tivity during 2007, with the
new service up and running
by June 2008. To make this
happen, 12 kilometers of
cable must be laid between
Saint Martin and Anguilla,
seven kilometers between
the two halves of Saint
Martin, and 32 kilometers
between Sint Maarten and
Saint Barth. If the EDF
serving the Guadeloupe
archipelago wants to see an
improvement in the service
it offers thanks to this new
interconnectivity, as well as
a greater concern for the
environment, the union for
the electrical workers does
not see things in the same
manner, as they regularly
denounce the dependency
that such a system would
introduce in terms of ener-
gy production.

162 bags of blood collected
The 162 bags of blood, approximately one pint each
(depending on the donor) collected this past weekend
by the Lions Club of Saint Barth6lemy in collaboration
with the French Blood Drive of Guadeloupe and the local
fire station, beat the record set in October 2005. This blood
will serve for approximately 55 transfusions, for the resi-
dents of Guadeloupe, not just those of Saint Barth. In addi-
tion, the population of French Guyana can benefit as well,
since the local collection of blood in that South American
French Overseas Department was suspended last year
when it was discovered that certain people there have Cha-
gas disease (American trypanosomiasis). And if the bags
of red globules, which have a life of just 42 days, once
they can arrive in Guyana they have only five days left,
which is why the blood from Guadeloupe is so important.

Interconnection between the islands.





As the local cost of a
liter of gasoline
keeps mounting,
with a recent price hike of
five cents bringing to to
the record high of 1.15
euros per liter, pressure
from local officials is
mounting in an attempt to
lower the price. There is
also pressure to change the
provenance of the fuel
sold here and go back to
the fuel that was distrib-
uted before August 2005.
That is to say that the
gasoline with a limit of 1%
benzene content (which
conforms to European
standards) distributed on
the island since that date
has caused the prices to
jump, from 91 cents in
May 2005 to the current
price of 1.15 euros. Last

December, the municipal
council made a request to
the prefect of
Guadeloupe, Paul Girot de
Langlade, asking that the
island return to the pre-
August 2005 situation in
which fuel was imported
from Trinidad, with a 3%
level of benzene, and sold
for de 20 to 25 cents less.
As this request went unan-
swered, mayor Bruno
Magras once more pushed
the issue. Last week, he
addressed a second letter
to the prefect in Guade-
loupe, asking again that he
authorize Saint Barth to be
provisioned with fuel that
would "put to an end the
inequality in treatment
between the residents of
Saint Barth and those of
Saint Martin."

Two islands, two rules

In fact, the company,
RAGE (Rubis Antilles
Guyane) that purchased, at
the end of 2005, the distri-
bution franchise of Shell
Antilles-Guyane, provi-
sions Saint Barth with fuel
that meets the European
standards, but has not
applied the same rule to
Saint Martin. As a result, in
Saint Martin today, a liter
of gasoline is 20 cents less
than in Saint Barth! Bruno
Magras has a lot of ammu-
nition since he recently
received a letter from the
director of RAGE, indicat-
ing, "to be ready to reestab-
lish the former chain of dis-
tribution (that of pre-
August 2005) immediately,
as soon as the administra-

tive body concerned (the
prefecture) gives us their
permission." The ball is in
the court of the prefecture.

Origin of the fuel

Formerly imported from
Trinidad, the gasoline cur-
rently sold on the island is
actually refined in Europel
After its transatlantic voy-
age, it is stocked in Sainte
Lucie, before being sent to
Guadeloupe, where a por-
tion of it is put into special
containers, with strict inter-
dictions by the French cus-
toms officials that prevent
stops in any ports before the
delivery to Saint Barth. The
distributor, RAGE, esti-
mates that this movement of
the fuel adds an extra 20 to
25 cents to the cost per liter.

in Sweden

Last March 23-26,
the most impor-
tant tourism fair in
Scandinavuia, the
"TUR," was held
in GBart h, ,!. Swe-
den, and was open
to the general pub-
lic as well as
tourism profes-
sionals. Saint
Barth was repre-
sented by E ise Elise Magras, Hannah and
manigpas from the Catherine Charneau
municipal tourist
office, and Catherine Chameau, vice-president of the Saint
Barth Hotel Association. During the event, a competition
was held, with 191 people answering questions based on
their knowledge of the historic ties between Sweden and
Saint Barth. Three Swedes were the winners: Christian
Alexandersson, mayor of the city of Halmstad (58,000 resi-
dents), Markus Thaler, tax inspector, and Inga Balldin. Each
won complimentary trips for two people to island hotels:
five nights at Francois Plantation, The Christopher, plus
three nights for Markus Thaler at the Carl Gustav.

T wo fires burned
simultaneously late
in the morning of
Friday, April 14. The first
charred more than an acre
in Marigot, while the sec-
ond scorched at least half
an acre in the hills of
Devet. In both cases, the
fires started in the under-
brush but the exact cause

is unknown. At the fire
station, the two firemen on
duty went to fight the fire
in Marigot as several
houses were not far from
the blaze. While they suc-
ceeded in protecting the
houses, one of the three
houses in question lost its
garden furniture in the fire,
and another house felt the

min e QouJeve
heat, while a small, unin-
habited wooden cottage
was completely destroyed
by the flames. In Devet,
where the residents fought
with everything they
had- from buckets to gar-
den hoses while waiting
for the firemen- the fire

was less iJcni., i(.I. even
though one house was
close to the flames. Yet the
firemen were called again
in the late afternoon then
the flames started up again
in Devet, yet did not cause
much additional damage.

You do not
have the
right of way

The traffic circle at La
Tourmente (the top of the
hill near the airport) has
altered the traffic patterns
, for who has the right-of-
way. Now, vehicles
already engaged in the
traffic circle have priority.
Below is a small diagram
to help you figure out
what to do.

* Horoscope
ARIES (March 21- April 19) :
Don't let others bait you into
arguments. Losses could occur if
you haven't been careful when
dealing with joint financial ventu-
res. Be prepared to lose friends or
alienate other people if you insist
on being stub born. Help elders
get their personal papers in order.
TAURUS (Apr. 21- may 21):
You can make life easier for an
older member of your family.
Investments will not be as they
appear this week. Have some fun,
but draw the line if someone tries
to fast talk their way into your
heart. Changes in your domestic
scene are evident.
GEMINI (May 22-June 21):
You can make money through
your own creative efforts.
Emotional matters may not be
easy for you to handle. Problems
with your boss could lead to
unemployment. You don't need to
pay out in order to have fun.
CANCER (June 22-July 22):
Someone around you may not be
trustworthy. This is not the day to
be extravagant. Try to be reasona-
ble. You will be prone to careless-
ness that could result in accidents.
LEO (July 23-Aug22):
You will be emotional with regard
to your personal life. You may as
well work on projects that will
allow you to make progress. You
are best not to discuss your perso-
nal life with others. Try to unders-
tand both sides of the issue before
taking sides.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 -Sept. 23):
Social get-together will bring you
in contact with intelligent new
friends. Do not invest in joint ven-
tures. Things will be hectic and
family members will be erratic.
Be diplomatic and honest, and
that person will only be made to
look bad.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 -Oct. 23): If you
have to deal with large institu-

tions, be careful not to make
waves. You will feel the limita-
tions if you have been overdoing
it. Deal with the needs of children
and get into groups that deal with
self awareness. You will have a
tendency to put on pounds.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22):
You need to keep busy doing
things that you both enjoy. Think
twice before you say something
you might regret later. Take care
of any pressing medical problems
that you or one of your parents
may be suffering from. Outdoor
sports events should entice you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 -Dec. 21):
You can get ahead if you are wil-
ling to take a partner. If you're
already in a relationship, use this
added energy passionately. You
will be uncertain of your feelings.
Travel will be favorable.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22.- Jan. 20):
Don't let your mate bully you into
thinking that you owe them your
time and your life. You may find
your nights sleepless due to bad
dreams. You may as well work on
projects that will allow you to
make progress. Overindulgence
will be a problem if you are out in
a social setting.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 19):
You need to sit back and enjoy.
Your own small business on the
side sounds pretty lucrative. Your
obviously unique way of doing
things has caught the eye of
someone in a higher position. You
will have a blowup this week if
your partner does things that you
feel are not aboveboard.
PISCES (Feb. 20- March 20):
Try to stay calm and understand
both sides of the situation.
Difficulties will result if you have
to deal with controversial groups
this week. You can expect sorrow
to evolve from the information
you discover. Look out for those
wanting to push you into a disa-

widely known solves all problems imme-
dietly. Results guaranteed revives love, stops
divorces & breakups, brings luck & money,
health & Happiness. Also reveals thoughts of
other's towards you. One free reading
