Many thanks to Peter Jordens for sending us information on this beautiful project— Aimé Césaire, un pays et des mots—which was televised on Martinican TV:

Aimé Césaire, un pays et des mots is a series of 20 short television programs that was broadcast on Antilles Télévision (Martinique) in the second half of this year, 2013, the centenary of Aimé Césaire’s birth. Each program was based on a poem by Aimé Césaire which he associated with a certain place that he loved and that inspired him. The television series was written by Patricia Marie-Victoire Vénus Ploton and directed by Frédéric Tyrode Saint Louis.

A compilation of some of these short programs is available on YouTube (in French):
