– A DOCUDRAMA BY ALISON SAUNDERS (BARBADOS)
Panama Dreams transports us on the modern-day search of film maker, Alison Saunders for descendants of Prince Collymore, an ancestor who left Barbados in the early 1900s to build the Panama Canal – one of the seven wonders of the modern world. With compelling re-enactments featuring Adrian Green as Prince, archival film and photos as well as contemporary images and interviews, the film maker tells a larger, poignant story of strength, endurance and sacrifice. The film also uncovers troubling issues of race and oppression that faced the West Indians who worked under a Jim Crow system of discrimination on the Canal Zone and still impact on the descendants of those Canal workers in Panama, the West Indies the US and Cuba today.
