Sur un Air de Révolte (To the Tune of Rebellion) Franck 'Frankito' Salin, Palaviré Productions, Trace 2013 | Guadeloupe | French |
| Feature Documentary

In 2009, Guadeloupe is burdened with the high cost of living. The poorest are caught in the stranglehold of brutal capitalism. Grumblings lead to a 44-day general strike. During this movement, the scale of which had never been seen, a chant written by Jacky Richard emerges and spreads. The refrain “La Gwadloup sé tan nou, la Gwadloup sé pa ta yo” – Guadeloupe is ours, Guadeloupe is not theirs, quickly becomes an anthem to pull together and galvanize angry crowds and travels around the world.
