“The Last Builder” creates a connection between a body builder and the Panama Canal. The video shows “the last builder” brought from Jamaica to Panama, who worked on the Canal since he was 15 years old.

“Sugar Cane Alley” focuses on the teenage life and adventures of young José who lives in a shanty-town on Martinique in the mid-’30s. José lives with his grandmother and is well aware of the French colonial presence but they are far away from his world. He gets into mischief, learns valuable lessons on living from an old former slave, gets drunk, and sets fire to one of the run-down shanties. Regardless of his pranks, José never gives up on his studies. At the end, his diligence pays off.
