Television is edited life. Television in our country right now is really coming from one source… We’re getting a foreign edited life. We are not seeing ourselves on the screen, that’s why we dress a certain way and sing these foreign songs. Nothing is wrong with that, but the television is not life; it’s not your life. You are just on the receiving end. You have no input.
- Steven Taylor (Trinidadian filmaker), from an interview with ARC Magazine
