Purely Dominica

Nom Fwigè is a short film by Pierre Deschamps and Dominica (Bradt Travel Guide) author Paul Crask about a day in the life of a tree fern mask carver who lives a simple life with his family in the Kalinago Territory village of Mahaut River, Dominica.

He goes to the woods, cuts down a tree fern and carves it into masks which he sells on a roadside stall to tourists. While his wife, a basket weaver, cooks crabs she has caught from a nearby river.

Not only does this documentary keeps you interested, it brings too life the rich heritage and culture of the Kalinago (Carib) people in Dominica. And it’s also a celebration of people for whom the trappings and complexities of the modern world are not only beyond reach, they are inconsequential.

Great documentary, definitely worth watching. Dominica – LIFE IS HERE!
