island. It is distribu-
ted on the island
every week from
November through
the end of July. Our
most exciting news
is that each Friday,

he final round of vot-
ing for a new French
president will take
place in Saint Barth on Sat-
urday, May 5, the day before
voters go to the polls in met-
ropolitan France on Sunday,
May 6. Former Interior Min-
ister Nicolas Sarkozy (UMP,
right) is running against the
Socialist candidate S6golkne
Royal. In Saint Barth, 3,019
voters of the 4,701 regis-
tered took part in the pri-
mary on April 21, marking a
record high of 63.41%.
The right-wing candidate,
Nicolas Sarkozy, was the
leader in Saint Barth where
mayor Bruno Magras, offi-
cial representative of the
UMP party on the island,

supports his campaign.
The polling places are open
from 8am to 8pm, and the
votes will be counted imme-
diately thereafter. The indi-
vidual results will be
announced in each of the
four locations, then the final
count will announced at City

Hall. Yet they cannot be
broadcast beyond the island
until 2pm the next day when
the polls close in France, and
at which time we will know
the identity of the new
French president who will
succeed Jacques Chirac.


Professional struc-
ture grouping all the
economic sectors on
the island: that is the basis
for a new organization that
will represent the various
interests of Saint Barth
(businesses, industry, arti-
sans, sales, independent

workers, etc...) when the
new Overseas Collectivity is
created. This new structure
will replace the current
chamber of commerce and
industry in Guadeloupe
when it comes to defending
the economic interests of
island. The economic lead-

ers of the island came to this
decision after a series of
meetings last week. These
meetings helped define this
future inter-professional
chamber- its goals, its
legal status, its funding, and



expressed their desire
to have representation
specific to Saint Barth,
and separate from that
of Guadeloupe and
Saint Martin. During
the time it will take to
establish this new
structure, they will
meet regularly to con-
tinue building the proj-
ect and start immedi-
ately to establish fund-
ing, and outline goals,
which include various
business rules and

Saint Barth Theatre Festival


SB Artists, a local non-
profit organization,
Continues its explo-
ration of theatrical genres with the
sixth edition of the annual Saint
Barth Theatre Festival. The theme
this year is the discovery of text-
based contemporary theatre. Run-
ning from Friday, May 4 through
Sunday, May 13, this year's festival
is the most modern to date, and also
the largest with six productions on
the menu: three by the amateur
actors of SB Artists, and three others
that have recently been performed in
France, and one of which, "L'envol
du Pingouin," has been nominated
for a Molibre Award (the French
equivalent of the Tony
Awards in the US) in the
best one-man show catego-
ry. The schedule also
includes "Jerry Finnegan's
\,\c!I" (La sceur de Jerry
King) by American play-
wright Jack Neary, as well
as "Y'a des jours comme
ca," a police comedy that
ran for several months at
Th6dtre Le Mery, one of
the most popular caf6-the-
atres in Paris.
These professional produc-
tions augment those by SB
Artists, our local amateur
troupe led by Nadege
Emmanuelian, who also
organizes the festival. The
company has been hard at
work rehearsing for a few
months and Emmanuelian
says the plays are in good

shape. She will perform "In Transit"
(Les pas perdus), a play by Denise
Bonal written in 2000. Seventeen
actors appear on stage one after the
other to sing, dance, tell stories,
slam... any form is good to portray
the mass of humanity passing by in a
train station. After performing in
"Inconnu a cette adresse," during the
2005 festival, (1 lii .1 ie and Corinne
are back in "Blanc," a poignant text
in which two sisters have a vision
that their mother is going to die.
From life and death to humor in
"Joyeuse Pagaille," a pure Vaude-
ville performed by six members of
SB Artists.

12th annual St. Barth Film Festival

The most intimist festival to date

he 12th edition of
the St. Barth Film
Festival/ Cin6ma
Caraibe closed last Tues-
day night with an addition-
al screening of the docu-
mentary, Memories of Our
Past (De m6moire d'an-
ciens), which tells the story
of Saint Barth through
memories of its older
natives. For film producer
Joshua Harrison, one of the
festival's co-founders who
works on programming the
films each year, this was
one of the most intimist
festivals yet, with a selec-
tion of films focusing on
the issues of daily life: "In
the past 12 years we have
succeeded in taking a com-
plete tour of Caribbean cin-
ema, its various styles, its
particularities, its important
messages. This year's festi-
val looked more closely at
the daily life of people, as
if examining their environ-
ments through a micro-
This 12th edition also
marked a larger geographic
area, with three Latin
American films that fall
outside of the strict con-
fines of Caribbean Cinema:

The 12th . ofthe St. Barth Festival was marked
by a personal style ', into the
,. of such characters as the title role of, .
a frustrated taxi driver in Havana, Cuba.

Saudade do Futuro, Pan's
Labyrinth, and Rolling
Family, the first Argen-
tinean film shown at the
festival. This choice was
intentional notes Harrison,
as a means to highlight the
similarities that exist
between Caribbean culture
and that of certain Latin
American countries.
Following this line of logic,
some festival goers may
have had difficulty explain-
ing the presence of Pan's
Labyrinth, a magnificent
film crowned by three
Academy Awards (with six
nominations), and the first

fantasy/thriller film to be
shown at the festival: "The
filmmaker, Guillermo del
Toro, the producer, the
cameraman, are all Mexi-
can. Only the casting is
international, yet at least
half of the actors are Mexi-
can as well," explains Har-
rison, who also wanted to
illustrate the increasing
importance of Mexican
filmmakers in the interna-
tional film industry. "Like
many other Caribbean film-
makers, they often have to
leave their native country
and work elsewhere in
order to set established."

The Harder
They Come, The Best
Of Caribbean Cinema

The organizers of the St.
Barth Film Festival have a
special place in their
hearts for The Harder
They Come, which was
shown as part of the first
festival in 1996, and again
as part of this year's pro-
gram in tribute to its direc-
tor, Perry Henzell, who
passed away in November
2006. For Joshua Harrison,
this 35 year-old landmark
Jamaican film, which
pushed the Caribbean and
reggae music onto the
international scene,
remains "the quintessential
Caribbean film. There has
never been anything else
quite like it."
Unless the long-awaited
sequel, No Place Like
Home, completed not long
before the director's death,
proves to be better. "This
film will be released in the
United States, and we
hope there will be a ver-
sion sub-titled in French
so that we can show it
here," Harrison says.
