Roseau is among various Caribbean cities which are featuring on a DVD produced by Martinique-based Independent film producer, Patrick Baucelin.

Over the past three years, Baucelin visited various cities within the Caribbean to produce the 70 minutes DVD called, “The Cities of the Caribbean”.

Speaking at a press conference in Roseau on Tuesday, Baucelin said the DVD is in three languages; English, French and Spanish and is expected to be shown at schools, the public library and Alliance Française.

“It is very important to know the different islands in the Caribbean and my idea is to produce this DVD in three language; French, English and Spanish for all people in the Caribbean…and is free for school, library, ministers and the tourism office board,” the film maker said.

He added, “I think for young people it is interesting to discover the different islands of the Caribbean…”

Baucelin said it took him at least four years to produce and edit the DVD with help from the European Development Fund.

Meanwhile, Director of Tourism, Colin Piper, said Dominica will greatly benefit from the exposure from that project.

“To have Dominica included in something like this which is going to be in museums, or in libraries and schools means that obviously the city and the destination is going to be well known,” Piper said.

“ It is really important because it puts Dominica alongside equal footing, equal time, amongst some of the older cities or newer cities or more developed cities so everyone gets equal opportunity…these are some of the things that we try to do just to make sure our destination is out there,” the DDA boss said.

    For the boss of DDA to have echoed “To have Dominica included in something like ……………. It is really important because it puts Dominica alongside equal footing, equal …………..” is simply laughable. A documentary on Caribbean cities is being filmed and you really believe that Roseau would not be part of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is a very proud moment for Dominica. I can just imagine the benefits that we can reap from this DVD. I believe that tourism can hit the roof, thus stimulating our economy. Thanks to Mr Boucelin we will be seen as a very desirable destination. I agree with him!! What a boost for Dominica. God bless Mr Boucelin and Hod bless DOMINICA.
