favorite island.


Nicolas Sarkozy and
Segolbne Royal are
the two candidates in
the second round of the
French presidential elections,
after a primary marked by a
high level of voter participa-
tion. Sarkozy, the right-wing
candidate, won 31 !I,. of the
vote, and Royal, the socialist
candidate, took 25.-'.,
becoming the first woman to
be a presidential contender in
France. The primary saw the
highest level of voting-
almost 85%-since the vote
for the first president of the
5th French Republic over 40
years ago, and the resulting
candidates represent the clas-
sic political platforms of the
left and right parties. Francois
Bayrou, a centrist candidate,
received 18.57% of the votes,
while Jean-Marie Le Pen,
leader of the extreme right in
France, saw an erosion of his
position with just 11%. In the
last presidential elections in
2002, Le Pen took the country
by surprise by winning
enough votes in the primary to
face Jacques Chirac in the run-
off. This unexpected scenario
forced the leaders of the left to
ask their supporters to vote for
the more traditional right wing
candidate, Jacques Chirac.
Saint Barth, which has a ten-
dency toward the right,
showed massive support for
Nicolas Sarkozy, giving him
58.94% of the votes in the pri-
mary, followed far behind by
S6golbne Royal, with 12 .,
which represents the highest
score a socialist has even seen
in Saint Barth. Francois Bay-
rou won 11.44% of the local
vote, and in keeping with the
rest of France, Le Pen came in
fourth, with a lower score here

than in the past,
declining from almost 20% of
the vote in 2002 to just 7.01%
last Saturday. The other eight
candidates met with the same
results as in France, not earn-
ing more than 5% of the vote.

A Move Toward
The Center
With high voter participation,
and higher scores for the
most part (except Jean-Marie
Le Pen) the 2007 French
presidential primary had the
same results in Saint Barth as
in the rest of the country: a
shift from the extremes
toward the center. This means
that the 10% of the voters
from 2002 who deserted
Jean-Marie this year went for
the most part to Nicolas
Sarkozy, who had 8% more


of the vote than the right
wing candidates in 2002 and
who did not run this time
(Madelin, M6gret, Boutin). A
large part of the moderate
right who voted for Chirac in
2002, seem to have joined the
Bayrou bandwagon in the pri-
mary, which explains the 7%
jump for the UDF candidate,
who on the other hand did not
seem to gain any votes from
the left.
S6golbne Royal also benefit-
ed from the general shift
toward the center. The totality
of the candidates representing
the far left had 11 .': of the
vote in 2002, but won only
8.46% this time. This los of
4.9% went to the socialist
camp, which saw a gain of
4.62% compared to 2002.

PEOPLE WATCH

FIMANMAKER A

ChsAR AND EAaRIE-CIMENCE PAES


'H e is from
Brazil. She is
from Mada-
gascar. They met in -
Paris and are now a
prolific film-making
couple with a keen -
interest in documen-
taries: C6sar and
Marie-Cl6mence
Paes are making their
first appearance at
the St Barth Film
Festival to present
Saudade du Futuro,
their portrait of Sao
Paulo, Brazil. "Sao Paulo is the eco-
nomic capital of Brazil, where people
go to work, while Rio is the pleasure
capital where they go to spend their
money," says C6sar, who was raised
in Rio but traveled extensively before
\c1lli,;i in Paris. He began making
movies in the 1980s, with an interest
in photography, then video, then film.
"We are more and more interested in
films and not television," he stresses,
noting that documentary filmmakers
often have to package their work to fit
a televised format.
In 1992 they had the idea for Saudade
du Futuro when they went to the
northeastern part of Brazil and discov-
ered that the people there have a
strong musical tradition, especially the
popular dance music called Forr6.
"They say that the name comes from
the English words For All," explains
Marie-Cl6mence, "The British railway
workers would have dances "for all"
to come, and the word Forr6 devel-
oped from there."
C6sar and Marie-Cl6mence found the
city of Sao Paulo a little daunting at
first, but wanted to make an urban
film, using the music and lyrics of
these songs to tell the story of the peo-
ple. This style of filmmaking appeals
more to C6sar than the making of fic-
tion films. "Reality can actually be
more imaginative than fiction," he
feels. Of course, living in Paris, C6sar
and Marie-Cl6mence are in the middle
of one of the filmmaking capitals of


the world. "Paris is also mid-way
from Madagascar to Brazil," says
C6sar, drawing a triangle in the air. "
Madagascar and Brazil are on the
same latitude and music is very
important in both places," he points
out. In fact, music is also an important
facet of the Paes' films, not only in
Saudade du Futuro but also in
Batuque, a film based on the dance
and music of Cape Verde. "The Por-
tuguese colonialists found this music
too lascivious based on the way the
women danced, and it was formally
forbidden under colonial rule," C6sar
notes. "The music in our films is also
a good way to reach new audiences
who don't usually go to see documen-
taries, especially young people. But
they like the music."
Cesar and Marie-Cl6mence are work-
ing on another documentary that will
be shot this summer around the pro-
duction of a new opera that tells the
story of the original \iilik' on Ile de
la Reunion, located in the Indian
Ocean east of Madagascar. But in
spite of all their travels, this globe
trotting couple is discovering Saint
Barth for the first time. "In addition
to the film festival, there is another
reason we wanted to come," says
Marie-Cl6mence. "We met in 1977
and are celebrating our 30th
anniversary together. We thought
that a week in Saint Barth would be
the perfect place."

Caribbean Cinema

All Year Long
An editing studio and a film
club: these are among the pro-
jects that the new non-profit
association, Cin6 Saint-Barth, hopes
to get underway in the next few
months. The association's president
Rosemond Gr6aux, sports reporter
and photographer for the Journal de
Saint Barth, notes that the St. Barth
Film Festival-which he organizes
each year with Joshua Harrison and
Ellen Lampert-Gr6aux- was under
the banner of the St. Barth6lemy Cul-
tural Center in the past. Since it was
launched 12 years ago, the festival
has brought filmmakers to the
schools to increase the understanding
of cinema, and promote filmmaking
as a profession. The association's
increase in cinema activities in Saint
Barth responds to a demand, espe-
cially from students, according to
Ellen Lampert-Gr6aux: "the techno-
logy exists today for students to make
and edit their own films. That is why
it makes sense to open an editing stu-
dio, open to all, students and adults
alike, to keep the spirit of filmmaking
alive all year long." It also makes
sense to open a free film club to show
Caribbean films all year long: "We
have been thinking about this for a
long time, but there wasn't really a
place to show video properly. The
opening of the new upstairs room a
the Capitainerie might allow us a
place for this activity."


S.Greaux, one of the
of the St. Barth! Festival,
is also the president of the new
association, Cine Saint-Barth.


LANMOU A BOIS: A documentary

about woodcutters in Guadeloupe
A Bois, on Sunday evening at the
Capitanerie just before the screening
of De Memoire D'Anciens (see festi-
val program for details).


Filmmaker Janluk Stanislas from
Guadeloupe is back for the third
year in a row at the St. Barth
Film Festival. First he brought his
futuristic short film, Trafik D'Info,
then he returned last year with local
musician Dominik Coco and a docu-
mentary about Coco's career. This
year, Janluk will present Lanmou A
Bois, a short documentary about the
',.,, 'I trI uI. working in the forests of
Pointe-Noire in Guadeloupe.

"I am proud to have been involved
with this film, as it represents an
important tradition in Guadeloupe,"
says Janluk, who was selected to
make the film by producer Alex
Nabis, who will accompany the film-
maker to Saint Barth this weekend to
present the 15-minute film, Lanmou


Produced by the town of Pointe Noir
(Le syndicate d'initiative), the film
looks at the natural universe of these
'"..,,k uiI!Ci and their traditional ways
of sawing wood by hand. "This is a
world I knew very little about before
making the film," says Janluk, who is
part of an artists' collective called C
Nou Menm. "The woodcutting pro-
vides these men with a way to earn
their living, and they are the keepers of
an important heritage. The film is a
tribute to them."
Considered a leader in the next gener-
ation of filmmakers from the French
West Indies, Janluk Stanislas is con-
sidered an intellectual maverick who
has a strong personal vision that both
looks toward the future yet is deeply
rooted in Caribbean culture. Before
turning to filmmaking he made
numerous music videos, including
those of the popular rap star in
Guadeloupe, Admiral T.
Janluk's short films -fiction and doc-
umentary- have been shown at
numerous festivals and on RFO televi-
sion. Will he soon have the resources
to make his first feature-length film?
We certainly hope so!
Ellen Lampert-Greaux


Larnacu a bwa (The Lcve of Wood)
by Janluk Stanislas
15 minutes Guadeloupe,
2006
This documentary tells about
how the town of Pointe-Noir
in Guadeloupe has a love
affair with wood working,
which is a way for many of
the men there to earn a liv-
ing. With wood they make
spoons and bowls for eating,
dominos for playing games,
drums for making music, and
even small Creole houses in
the past...

Poetry Week:

A new initiative worth repeating


he first edition of St. Barth's
Poetry Week came to an end on
Thursday, April 19, with a
morning wake-up call for Virgile
Novarina, who had slept in the win-

ing the Port of Gustavia for six nights.
This Poetry Week began on Friday,
April 13 with the opening of the
exhibit, Poets On The Island, at Porta
34 gallery in Gustavia, featuring Luis
Mizon, Jean Michel Maulpoix, and
Virgile Novarina, the three poet-
painters invited by Monique Pignet,
organizer of the event. A former
teacher who works in the hotel busi-
ness, says she is surprised by the sepa-
ration of the worlds of business and
culture, and hopes to build bridges
between these universes: "This will
help the poets, but also provide access
to people who don't known anything
about the world of poetry. This rich

Nils DuFau New President of ASBAS


t the recent general assembly
of ASBAS, the St. Barth
Friends of Sweden associa-
tion, Nils Dufau became president
after a two-year term for Daniel
Blanchard. The 37 year-old Dufau
arrived in St. Barth at the age of 12,
but is very familiar with Sweden,
which is perfectly normal as his
mother is Swedish and Nils studied
political science and audiovisual
communication at the University of
Lund. Since he came back to St.
Barth in 1995, Nils has continued to
go back and forth between the island
where he lives and the country of his
mother's ancestors.
As he took the reins of the associa-
tion, Dufau explained the philosophy
of the organization: "ASBAS sup-
ports and commemorates the positive
values bequeathed by Sweden when
it returned Saint Barth to the French
in 1878, and maintains the ties of


WI I

friendship with Sweden. ASBAS also
works in tandem with the associa-
tion, Sallskapet (based in Stock-
holm), on all projects designed to
enrich the links between our two
communities."


Sailing and Wind-Surfing
Around the Island
On Sunday
The Saint Barth Nautical Center has
announced an around-the-island race
for catamarans and wind-surfers on
Sunday, April 29. The race will go in a
clockwise direction, starting in the bay
of St. Jean at 10am. The records to
beat: 1'14" for wind-surfing held by
Ricardi Maricel from Saint Martin; and
1'52" for catamarans held by Jeff
L6d6e and Vincent Jordil.
At 1pm, there will be a BBQ, bar, and
music with the group BRH, as well as
the awards ceremony-all on the St.
Jean beach (airport side).
The race is open to all, and the organi-
zers can provide a license for the day.
But the event is difficult and therefore
recommended for those experience in
these sports.

2 2 St Barth Weekly n¡118 WELCOME!The St. Barth Weekly is happy to be back for its fourth season. The Weekly is designed to help you put your finger on the pulse of the local community. Featuring an English rŽsumŽ of the top stories in our French newspaper, Le Journal de Saint Barth, as well as original articles in English, The St. Barth Weekly is the only completely English-language newspaper on the island. It is distributed on the island every week from November through the end of July. Our most exciting news is that each Friday, The Weekly is also available online at Saint Barth Online (www.stbarths.com), the wonderful web site launched in 1996, and now run by our friends Bruno and GŽraldine Colletas. Thanks to them, you can download every edition of The St. Barth Weekly, so that no matter where you are in the world, you can stay in touch with your favorite island. Nicolas Sarkozy and SŽgolne Royal are the two candidates in the second round of the French presidential elections, after a primary marked by a high level of voter participation. Sarkozy, the right-wing candidate, won 31.18% of the vote, and Royal, the socialist candidate, took 25.87%, becoming the first woman to be a presidential contender in France. The primary saw the highest level of votingÑ almost 85%Ñsince the vote for the first president of the 5th French Republic over 40 years ago, and the resulting candidates represent the classic political platforms of the left and right parties. Franois Bayrou, a centrist candidate, received 18.57% of the votes, while Jean-Marie Le Pen, leader of the extreme right in France, saw an erosion of his position with just 11%. In the last presidential elections in 2002, Le Pen took the country by surprise by winning enough votes in the primary to face Jacques Chirac in the runoff. This unexpected scenario forced the leaders of the left to ask their supporters to vote for the more traditional right wing candidate, Jacques Chirac. Saint Barth, which has a tendency toward the right, showed massive support for Nicolas Sarkozy, giving him 58.94% of the votes in the primary, followed far behind by SŽgolne Royal, with 12.88%, which represents the highest score a socialist has even seen in Saint Barth. Franois Bayrou won 11.44% of the local vote, and in keeping with the rest of France, Le Pen came in fourth, with a lower score here than in the past, declining from almost 20% of the vote in 2002 to just 7.01% last Saturday. The other eight candidates met with the same results as in France, not earning more than 5% of the vote. AMove Toward The CenterWith high voter participation, and higher scores for the most part (except Jean-Marie Le Pen) the 2007 French presidential primary had the same results in Saint Barth as in the rest of the country: a shift from the extremes toward the center. This means that the 10% of the voters from 2002 who deserted Jean-Marie this year went for the most part to Nicolas Sarkozy, who had 8% more of the vote than the right wing candidates in 2002 and who did not run this time (Madelin, MŽgret, Boutin). A large part of the moderate right who voted for Chirac in 2002, seem to have joined the Bayrou bandwagon in the primary, which explains the 7% jump for the UDF candidate, who on the other hand did not seem to gain any votes from the left. SŽgolne Royal also benefited from the general shift toward the center. The totality of the candidates representing the far left had 13.36% of the vote in 2002, but won only 8.46% this time. This los of 4.9% went to the socialist camp, which saw a gain of 4.62% compared to 2002.Pr esidential Primar y Nicolas Sarkozy and SŽgolne Royal To Run For Top Office The polling place in Colombier GrŽgory LŽdŽe and Thierry Isaac voted for the first time: Two friends with different political opinions but who respect each other when discussing politics The good news: young people are voting again!

0 0 4 4St Barth Weekly n¡118 He is from Brazil. She is from Madagascar. They met in Paris and are now a prolific film-making couple with a keen interest in documentaries: CŽsar and Marie-ClŽmence Paes are making their first appearance at the St Barth Film Festival to present Saudade du Futuro, their portrait of Sao Paulo, Brazil. "Sao Paulo is the economic capital of Brazil, where people go to work, while Rio is the pleasure capital where they go to spend their money," says CŽsar, who was raised in Rio but traveled extensively before settling in Paris. He began making movies in the 1980s, with an interest in photography, then video, then film. "We are more and more interested in films and not television," he stresses, noting that documentary filmmakers often have to package their work to fit a televised format. In 1992 they had the idea for Saudade du Futuro when they went to the northeastern part of Brazil and discovered that the people there have a strong musical tradition, especially the popular dance music called Forr—. "They say that the name comes from the English words For All," explains Marie-ClŽmence, "The British railway workers would have dances "for all" to come, and the word Forr— developed from there." CŽsar and Marie-ClŽmence found the city of Sao Paulo a little daunting at first, but wanted to make an urban film, using the music and lyrics of these songs to tell the story of the people. This style of filmmaking appeals more to CŽsar than the making of fiction films. "Reality can actually be more imaginative than fiction," he feels. Of course, living in Paris, CŽsar and Marie-ClŽmence are in the middle of one of the filmmaking capitals of the world. "Paris is also mid-way from Madagascar to Brazil," says CŽsar, drawing a triangle in the air. " Madagascar and Brazil are on the same latitude and music is very important in both places," he points out. In fact, music is also an important facet of the Paes'films, not only in Saudade du Futuro but also in Batuque, a film based on the dance and music of Cape Verde. "The Portuguese colonialists found this music too lascivious based on the way the women danced, and it was formally forbidden under colonial rule," CŽsar notes. "The music in our films is also a good way to reach new audiences who don't usually go to see documentaries, especially young people. But they like the music." CŽsar and Marie-ClŽmence are working on another documentary that will be shot this summer around the production of a new opera that tells the story of the original settlers on ële de la RŽunion, located in the Indian Ocean east of Madagascar. But in spite of all their travels, this globe trotting couple is discovering Saint Barth for the first time. "In addition to the film festival, there is another reason we wanted to come," says Marie-ClŽmence. "We met in 1977 and are celebrating our 30th anniversary together. We thought that a week in Saint Barth would be the perfect place."

0 0 6 6St Barth Weekly n¡118Filmmaker Janluk Stanislas from Guadeloupe is back for the third year in a row at the St. Barth Film Festival. First he brought his futuristic short film, Trafik D'Info, then he returned last year with local musician Dominik Coco and a documentary about Coco's career. This year, Janluk will present Lanmou A Bois, a short documentary about the woodcutters working in the forests of Pointe-Noire in Guadeloupe. "I am proud to have been involved with this film, as it represents an important tradition in Guadeloupe," says Jan luk, who was selected to make the film by producer Alex Nabis, who will accompany the filmmaker to Saint Barth this weekend to present the 15-minute film, Lanmou ABois, on Sunday evening at the Capitanerie just before the screening of De Memoire D'Anciens (see festival program for details). Produced by the town of Pointe Noir (Le syndicate d'initiative), the film looks at the natural universe of these woodcutters and their traditional ways of sawing wood by hand. "This is a world I knew very little about before making the film," says Janluk, who is part of an artists'collective called C Nou Menm. "The woodcutting provides these men with a way to earn their living, and they are the keepers of an important heritage. The film is a tribute to them." Considered a leader in the next generation of filmmakers from the French West Indies, Janluk Stanislas is considered an intellectual maverick who has a strong personal vision that both looks toward the future yet is deeply rooted in Caribbean culture. Before turning to filmmaking he made numerous music videos, including those of the popular rap star in Guadeloupe, Admiral T. Janluk's short films Ñfiction and documentaryÑ have been shown at numerous festivals and on RFO television. Will he soon have the resources to make his first feature-length film? We certainly hope so! Ellen Lampert-GrŽaux Caribbean Cinema All Year LongAn editing studio and a film club: these are among the projects that the new non-profit association, CinŽ Saint-Barth, hopes to get underway in the next few months. The association's president Rosemond GrŽaux, sports reporter and photographer for the Journal de Saint Barth, notes that the St. Barth Film FestivalÑwhich he organizes each year with Joshua Harrison and Ellen Lampert-GrŽauxÑ was under the banner of the St. BarthŽlemy Cultural Center in the past. Since it was launched 12 years ago, the festival has brought filmmakers to the schools to increase the understanding of cinema, and promote filmmaking as a profession. The association's increase in cinema activities in Saint Barth responds to a demand, especially from students, according to Ellen Lampert-GrŽaux: "the technology exists today for students to make and edit their own films. That is why it makes sense to open an editing studio, open to all, students and adults alike, to keep the spirit of filmmaking alive all year long." It also makes sense to open a free film club to show Caribbean films all year long: "We have been thinking about this for a long time, but there wasn't really a place to show video properly. The opening of the new upstairs room a the Capitainerie might allow us a place for this activity." Lanmou a bwa (The Love of Wood) LANMOU A BOIS: A documentary about woodcutters in Guadeloupe by Janluk Stanislas 15 minutes Guadeloupe, 2006This documentary tells about how the town of Pointe-Noir in Guadeloupe has a love affair with wood working, which is a way for many of the men there to earn a living. With wood they make spoons and bowls for eating, dominos for playing games, drums for making music, and even small Creole houses in the pastÉ Rosemond GrŽaux, one of the organizers of the St. Barth Film Festival, is also the president of the new non-profit association, CinŽ Saint-Barth.

St Barth Weekly n¡1180 0 7 7The first edition of St. Barth's Poetry Week came to an end on Thursday, April 19, with a morning wake-up call for Virgile Novarina, who had slept in the window of the Piment Vert boutique facing the Port of Gustavia for six nights. This Poetry Week began on Friday, April 13 with the opening of the exhibit, Poets On The Island, at Porta 34 gallery in Gustavia, featuring Luis Mizon, Jean Michel Maulpoix, and Virgile Novarina, the three poetpainters invited by Monique Pignet, organizer of the event. Aformer teacher who works in the hotel business, says she is surprised by the separation of the worlds of business and culture, and hopes to build bridges between these universes: "This will help the poets, but also provide access to people who don't known anything about the world of poetry. This rich interior landscape is full of knowledge, a bastion against the world of consumerism, the way to see things differently," says Pignet, who has already organized many poetry "happenings" in the hotels she manages in Paris. Pignet is already thinking of a second edition, which would take a different shape. For her, that's what poetry is all about: a medium that multiplies the force of the message, and is the quintessential form of literary expression. Poetry fans take note.Apoet exploring the meaning of sleep, Virgile Novarina slept for six nights in the window of the Piment Vert boutique facing the Port of Gustavia. This poetic happening, "Snoozing," was part of the island's first week of poetry and represents Virgile had been dreaming of for the past 10 years: to wake up in total obscurity and note the first impressions that come to mind. This idea came to him as he finished his engineering studies: "I realized that we spend a third of our time sleeping, often without having the slightest memory. I thought that was a shame and started to try and remember what I could of this mysterious third of our lives. Surprise: the memory is like a muscle, the more you work it, the more it develops." Contrary to his expectations, this attempt to remember his dreams gave birth to Novarina's "Night Writings and Designs" Ñthe title of three of his booksÑ which are not transcriptions of his dreams but rather the first flashes he "sees" when waking up from a deep sleep. Even in the middle of the nights, if he finds himself awake, without turning on the light, he writes or draws what he senses. Then during the day he deciphers them. "Words, lines, designs, phrases, these flashes are very different from each other," he says. "They have nothing to do with reality, and are not inspired by what happens during the day. They can be mysterious, funny, absurd, or innocuous. I dislike some of them, but I decided not to make a choice or filter them by my personal taste." This subconscious poetry is related to the idea of automatic writing developed by the surrealists in the early 20th century. In order not to forget these insights, Novarina notes them immediately, eyes open, in a state of semi-sleep, in the dark: "If I turn on the light, the flashes fade and are erased from my memory," says the artist. The next day he redraws everything with a fountain pen, as if the light of day helps focus the images. In 10 years, Novarina has made 4,280 night writings and drawings, all of which are numbered, and to which he must add the eight from Saint Barth. Just over 30 years old, this young artistÑ who is the son of noted French playwright Valre NovarinaÑ has already published six books about his adventures in the night.

After dealing with fire, pollution was the next order of business for the port and SNSM as well as firemen and representatives from the local electric company, who all took part in a simulation exercise on the Quai GŽnŽral de Gaulle in Gustavia. This exercise was coordinated by Virgile Mialet, from the company Tees, a supplier of antipollution equipment, which the municipality, Shell, and EDF have acquired. The company also coordinated an initial training exercise in the fall of 2005. Big Activities In The HarborAt the recent general assembly of ASBAS, the St. Barth Friends of Sweden association, Nils Dufau became president after a two-year term for Daniel Blanchard. The 37 year-old Dufau arrived in St. Barth at the age of 12, but is very familiar with Sweden, which is perfectly normal as his mother is Swedish and Nils studied political science and audiovisual communication at the University of Lund. Since he came back to St. Barth in 1995, Nils has continued to go back and forth between the island where he lives and the country of his mother's ancestors. As he took the reins of the association, Dufau explained the philosophy of the organization: "ASBAS supports and commemorates the positive values bequeathed by Sweden when it returned Saint Barth to the French in 1878, and maintains the ties of friendship with Sweden. ASBAS also works in tandem with the association, SŠllskapet (based in Stockholm), on all projects designed to enrich the links between our two communities." Sailing and Wind-Surfing Around the Island On SundayThe Saint Barth Nautical Center has announced an around-the-island race for catamarans and wind-surfers on Sunday, April 29. The race will go in a clockwise direction, starting in the bay of St. Jean at 10am. The records to beat: 1'14" for wind-surfing held by Ricardi Maricel from Saint Martin; and 1'52" for catamarans held by Jeff LŽdŽe and Vincent Jordil. At 1pm, there will be a BBQ, bar, and music with the group BRH, as well as the awards ceremonyÑall on the St. Jean beach (airport side). The race is open to all, and the organizers can provide a license for the day. But the event is difficult and therefore recommended for those experiece in these sports.
