For this, the Fifth Edition of the 2017 Series, we will be featuring a film exploring environmental issues in Trinidad & Tobago. Through the stories in A BETTER PLACE, we learn of the work of organizations in Trinidad & Tobago, working with youth and communities, to help facilitate sustainable living environments.
Directed by award-winning filmmaker Miquel Galofré and produced by Sustain T&T’s own Carver Bacchus, “A Better Place,” takes the viewer to five communities in Trinidad and Tobago, where people are doing great things, charting their own course and inspiring others to do the same. Each of the featured organizations are also supported by UNDP, GEF, and SGP. The film also features musical performances from home- grown talent.
Infused with local music, stunning visuals complement stories of hope, resilience and survival.
