CULTURE CLASH

“CULTURE CLASH,” is a documentary on Caribbean people living as immigrants.  It tells the story of second-generation Caribbean immigrants and the challenges they face in holding to their family heritage while embracing American culture.
In recent years, immigrant communities have stayed in closer communication with their homelands through cable and satellite television and the internet. While this makes it possible for the second generation to retain a stronger ethnic identity, at the same time, television, movies, and the Internet create a powerful homogenizing force, pulling the children of immigrants into American mass culture.
