“The French Caribbean island of Martinique is an inspiration for everything visual. This is why painters such as Paul Gauguin and Romare Bearden, or filmmakers like Euzhan Palcy, Khris Burton or Lucien Jean-Baptiste, thrived in capturing the spirit, strength and soul of the island. This new generation of directors presented at the CFF are showcasing their vision of Martinique’s vibrancy and true character.” Said Karine Mousseau the chairman of the Martinique Tourism Authority.
