Description

Sugar Cane Alley 1930: on a sugar cane plantation in Martinique lives José, a bright mischievous 11-year-old and his grandmother, a tough, wise woman determined to save him from the hard life she has known. When Jose wins a scholarship, she is ready to sacrifice everything for his chance at an education and an escape from the fields.

Siméon: In a small village in the West Indies, Siméon, a music teacher and Isidore, his star disciple, a mechanic by necessity and guitarist by passion, shared the same ambition, an impossible dream — to put their island on the world’s music map with Zouk music. Orélie, Isidore’s ten year old daughter helps him in his endeavours,by bringing Simeon, back to life, after he fell from his tree, trying to get too close to the full moon.

A Dry White Season:School teacher Ben du Toit (Donald Sutherland) has been insulated all his life from the horrors of apartheid in his native South Africa. That is until an incident hits close to home which soon exposes him to the truly arbitrary and violent nature of the system he has so long benefited from.

When the son of his black gardener is arrested and beaten as a result of a protest in Soweto, at first he imagines the police must have had their reasons. However, the boy is picked up again, and this time he doesn’t come back. Ben promises his servant that he will look into the incident, and with the help of Ian Mackenzie (Marlon Brando), turns into a radical firebrand, alienating himself from his white friends and neighbors, as well as members of his family.
