About

Griga — The Documentary
Griga — The Documentary

Story Summary:

Griga explores the issues and challenges artists and entertainers in Dangriga, Belize faces while exploring creative solutions.

These issues stemming from the lack of resources and knowledge to challenges, like poverty, and gun violence. The viewers will learn about some of the creative solutions artists and entertainers have come up with, through a series of interviews from some of the most notable artists and entertainers, like Supa G, Worl Nova and more.

This film also educates viewers about the different musical genre of Belize, from the Garifuna music; to the traditional Brukdown music; and to modern genres, like Belizean Reggae Dancehall and Belizean Rap.

Finally, the documentary ends with a tribute to one of Belize's well-known singer, John Jay Rodrigues, who lost his life to gun violence.
