Director, Philip Teuscher, has highlighted the lack of access to finance for the Island's indigenous people as a critical aspect in his documentary film on Dominica's indigenous people.
Access to credit facilities has been an issue for the Kalinago people for a number of years now and they continue to call for their own credit facility even after monies were donated by the Venezuelan Government for that purpose.
Teuscher and a crew are here to film an update to his 1979 documentary film series 'Last of the Karaphuna'.
The new film, 'Triumph of the Kalinago' is expected to feature the current livelihood of the Kalinago people and the significant strides they have made since 1979.
