Blurb:

Sun, Sea and Science - Trinidad After Oil, looks at the possibilities for Caribbean development outside the traditional areas of tourism, Carnival and primary agriculture. It looks at the  work of three Trinidadian scientists in biotechnology, artificial intelligence, and public health, to create new and sustainable forms of wealth and human capital. 

The film is located in Trinidad & Tobago, but its message is applicable to the English-speaking Caribbean. This link (creating a platform to address common developmental issues in Trinidad and the Caribbean) is enabled by an the Anthony N Sabga Caribbean Awards for Excellence, which produced and is featured in the movie. 

The Caribbean Awards scheme has presented awards to 39 laureates throughout the region since 2006, and has underscored the importance of the science and entrepreneurship in economic development. Sun, Sea and Science, premiered at the Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival in 2018, and has been screened throughout the region via UWItv and other platforms. www.ansacaribbeanawards.com
