Garifuna In Peril  Honduras / 2013 / 100 mins

A Garifuna language teacher, Ricardo, struggles to preserve his endangered Afro-Amerindian culture by building a language school back in his home village in Honduras, Central America. A business venture with his brother, designed to raise money for the school’s construction, becomes complicated by the expansion plans of a nearby tourist resort into indigenous territory. Historical parallels are evoked as Ricardo’s son rehearses a stage play about the Garifuna people’s last stand against British colonialism, over 200 years ago in their motherland, the island of St. Vincent in the Caribbean.
