Creative Film Work

Climate Change: Voices of the Vulnerable – The Fisherman’s Plight – A documentary of the impacts of climate change on the fishing industry in Trinidad and Tobago: June 2012

  • This documentary talks a practical approach to research by allowing the researcher to not only report the views of a marginalized community with respect to climate change, but allows for these voices to be visible to a wider audience through the use of film. The video, which is sponsored by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, through their Climate Frontlines Grant program, follows fishers in three villages of Trinidad and Tobago.
