“I Live for Art – An Ecocide Romance” on youtube


A message from Jamaican film director Esther Figueroa.

In view of the planned transhipment port slated to be built and owned by the Chinese in the Portland Bight Protected Area off the south coast of Jamaica (http://www.jamaicaobserver.com/news/Officials-insist-Goat-Islands-must-be-protected_14977497), you might want to watch my latest environmental short “I live for Art – An Ecocide Romance” about the first Government of Jamaica-Chinese infrastructure project, the Palisadoes Shoreline Protection and Rehabilitation Works Project.

This US70 million borrowed dollars less than 4 kilometers of road construction is also in an environmentally “protected” area, “protected” both by Jamaican and international law, which is also the case with the Portland Bight Protected Area.

“I Live for Art” contains three years of documentary footage of the transformation of the Palisadoes tombolo, from the launch of the road works project to its “completion” in breach of the environmental clauses of the contract.

“I Live for Art” which premiered in June at the Kingston on the Edge Short Film Festival  is public on my youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5uWKA17URfo

  1. Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Chrome, it looks fine
    but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic blog!
