Sixth Edition of
"Around the Island" At Sea

The sixth edition of the
"Around the Island" event
organized by the Nautical
Center of Saint Barth, in
collaboration with Radio
Saint Barth, takes place
May 1-3. This tour,
launched in 2004, has
expanded this year to
include Laser sailboats,
while in the past it was
limited to sport catamarans
and wind surfing. This
year's first prize of 1000

Euros goes to whoever
breaks the speed records
set during the first edition
of the event in 2004: Ricar-
di Maricel, wind-surfing
(lhl4mn37sec); or by the
team Jeff Ledee/Vincent
Jordil on sport catamaran
(lh32mn50sec). The
organizers hope that the
large prize money will help
attract record-level partici-
pation for the 2009 edition
of the event.

Bernard Pichon

To Saint Barth
HW m-0

Celebrated Swiss journalist
and radio/television produc-
er Bernard Pichon is known
as a "big voyager." His arti-
cles appear regularly in the
Swiss press, he hosts a pro-
gram about traveling on
Radio Suisse Romande's
Saturday Journal, produces
the "voyages" section for the
program "Dolce Vita," and
has created a website called
"Pichon Voyager," whose
goal is to share his passion
for traveling.
Pichon's travels recently
brought him to Saint Barth
where he met with the press
representative for the Toiny
Hotel during the Easter holi-
days, accompanied by pho-
tographer Carlos Brito. Their
goal: fabulous photographs


ana videos mat win give
well-heeled Swiss tourists a
"taste" of the hotel: "the
sense of security, protection
of the environment, luxury
accommodations, in spite of
the distance which could be
a deterrent, there is every-
thing here to please the
Swiss clientele," insists this
indefatigable globe trotter,
who had just returned from
three days in the Arab Emi-
rates before coming here.
The first of these "tasty"
videos is already online at
while others are being edit-
ed. Pichon's reports should
also be broadcast in May on
"Dolce Vita," as well as on
the Saturday Journal on
Radio Suisse Romande.

23rd Edition of the Carifta Swimming Games

The Antilles-Guyane team
of 21 swimmers, including
Theo Estasse of Saint Barth
Natation, finished third at
the Carifta Swimming
Games, which took place
April 16-19 in Aruba. The
team, which won the last
four editions of the Carifta
Swimming event, garnered
a total of 47 medals this
year (18 gold, 17 silver, and
12 bronze) They stood in
third place on the podium,
with the team from the
Bahamas in second place
(with 49 medals) and the
swimmers from Trinidad &
Tobago taking first place

with 67 medals, of which
31 were gold! And what
about the results for the
swimmer from Saint Barth
Natation? Theo, who had
won a gold medal in 2008,
came home decorated with
seven medals-as the
swimmer with the second
highest number of medals
at the Carifta Games. He
won a gold medal for the
400m medley (mixed
strokes), five silver medals
for 50m, 100m, and 200m
breaststroke and 200m
backstroke, as well as a
bronze medal for the 100m
medley relay!

14th Annual St Barth Film Festival :

Marking the 50th anniver-
sary of the Cuban revolu-
tion, the 2009 edition of the
Saint Barth Film Festival,
which takes place this Sat-
urday through April 30,
examines this historic event
spearheaded by Ernesto
Che Guevara, and Raul,
and Fidel Castro, as they
created a Pro-Soviet regime
just miles from the United
States in the late 1950s.

Over the years, the festival
has projected many wonder-
ful films made in Cuba, the
largest island of the Greater
Antilles. This year, the
focus is from a different
angle: that of international
filmmakers who turned
their lenses toward Cuba.
This was a decision made
by the festival organizers
who wanted to present this

unusual island in a different
manner. The highpoint of
the program: without a
doubt the projection of both
parts of Che, the Spanish-
American film made by
Steven Soderbergh (Satur-
day, April 25 and Sunday,
April 26 at AJOE). Che was
presented at the Cannes
Film Festival in 2008,
where lead actor Benecio
Del Toro won the prize for
Best Actor for his interpre-
tation of Che Guevara. Part
bio-pic, this diptych focuses
on two major moments in
the life of the iconic revolu-
tionary, Ernesto Guevara:
The first film, The Argen-
tine, covers his fight in
Cuba's Sierra Maestra, from
1956-1959, before taking
power in Havana; The sec-
ond film, Che Guerilla,
explores his final defeat in





Lne, oy ireven sooernergn
the jungles of Bolivia in

But if there were a master-
piece not to be missed-at
least in the opinion of Mar-
tin Scorsese and Francis
Ford Coppola-it would be
"Soy Cuba," which will be
projected at AJOE on Tues-
day, March 28. Made by
Soviet director Mikhail
Kalatozov in 1964, just five
years after the Cuban revo-
lution, the film was initially
intended to serve as propa-
ganda for the new Cuban
state run by Fidel Castro.
But it was "shelved" after
its first projection in


06 90 226 661 a 06 90 18 30 42 4

Moscow, as it did not meet
the approval of the Soviet
authorities or that of the
Cuban leader. Ironically, it
also fell under the American
blockade of Cuba, and was
not shown in the US until
1992 at the Telluride Film
Festival. Yet another year
would go by before Martin
Scorsese and Francis Ford
Coppola discovered it at the
San Francisco Film Festi-
val, and moved by the beau-
ty of the images and the fer-
vor of its tone, added their
signatures to the poster to
help ensure wider distribu-
tion in the United States.

Two other festival events
also focus on Cuba: the pro-
jection "Almendron mi
Corazon," a film by direc-
tors Steve and Stephanie
James, which is dedicated to
the "American beauties,"
those vintage automobiles
from before the revolution,
which paradoxically have
become a piece of the
island's revolutionary histo-
ry. There will also be a
round-table discussion in
collaboration with the
Lyceum Club at the Capi-
tainerie on Wednesday,
April 29 at 6pm. Based on
the theme "The
Impact Of Cuba
On Caribbean
Cinema," the dis-
cussion will be
moderated by pro-
fessor Dr.
Frangoise Pfaff an
expert in literature
and cinema from
Howard Universi-
ty (born in Guade-
loupe and raised in
France where she
earned her PhD at
the University of
Paris), and feature

Focus On Cuba

Film Festival, and filmmak-
ers Steve and Stephanie

Listen To The Music
In addition to its Cuban
focus, the festival will also
project "Fados," the latest
film by Carlos Saura. Fol-
lowing "Flamenco" (1995)

FADOS, by Carlos Saura
and "Tango" (1998), this n
Spanish filmmaker turned I
his interest to Fado, the
melancholic musical style
from Portugal that is heard i
from Angola to Brazil. c
Another musical note on the b
program-on the giant a
inflatable screen brought c
from Guadeloupe by the t
association, Cine Woule, and i
projectionist Jean-Marc g
Cesaire- is "Soca Power in I
Trinidad and Tobago," a p
recent film by Claude Santi- n
ago featuring stars of Soca, a F
musical genre akin to Calyp- (
so dance music born during d
Carnival in Trinidad in the e
70s. Producer Jean-Michel ti
Gibert will present the film. (
Another festival guest is the a
Haitian filmmaker, Arnold
Antonin, who will be wear-
ing two hats: he will present
two of his films, "Does The
President Have Aids?" and
"Jacques Roumain: la pas-
sion d'un pays," and serve as
representative for the Second
Travelling Caribbean Film
Showcase, this time dedicat-
ed to children and adoles-
