Life and Death in Paradise

The Caribbean islands — home to an exceptionally diverse array of landscapes, animals and plants, including countless endemic, threatened and truly bizarre species like the solenodon, the hutia, and the Cuban crocodile. Isolation and limited space have forged a unique collection of life on each of the islands.

These stunning films feature Cuba and neighbouring Hispaniola with their rich endemic biodiversity as the biggest islands. And at the southern end of the island arch lie perhaps the youngest Caribbean islands — Trinidad and Tobago — with their rich South American heritage still struggling to adjust to island life.

The Caribbean may seem like paradise, but beneath the surface, the eternal fight for survival is a harsh fact of life. This is a gripping insight into the challenges of life beyond white beaches and nodding palm trees.
