Identities Withheld by Choice

[End Page 119] The following stills are selected from recorded interviews from my experimental documentary called ON THE MAP.

This thirty-two-minute video project gives voice to the contemporary un/documented CARICOM migrant experience in the Southern Caribbean and contributes to an understanding of the Caribbean through current intra-regional migration patterns.

The following images are of CARICOM nationals, moving within the CARICOM region (in response to a lack of opportunities in failing economies) and who are working to build homes and create communities for themselves.

Annalee Davis

Annalee Davis lives and works in Barbados producing videos, installations, drawings, and paintings. Her work explores notions of home and belonging, and issues of migration and land use, all while exploring the ambivalent nature of post-independence Caribbean states. She recently completed a video project entitled On the Map. This thirty-two-minute documentary looks at current intra-regional migration and gives un/documented Caribbeans an opportunity to speak about their migrant experience. “Identities Withheld by Choice” was born out of the On the Map project.
