I am surprised that you have not included on the list of films made in Jamaica - "Glory to Gloriana" - the poetic film about a strong black Jamaican woman. I saw this film in an underground cinema in London and I was warmed by the pastel colours and the passion of the woman as captured by the brilliant director Please correct this oversight.
