Rue cases negres / Sugar Cane Alley (1983) DVD9
Set in Martinique during the 1930s, Sugar Cane Alley tells the story of Jose (Garry Cadenat), a young boy being raised by his hard-working grandmother (the magnificent Darling Legitimus). Forced to toil long hours in the sugar cane fields to find the means to survive, she resists allowing her grandson to join her in the back-breaking labor long after all his friends begin working to help support their families. She knows that Jose is an unusually intelligent boy, and dreams of a future where he will use his head, and not his hands, to earn his living...
