Roots | Routes

Stuart Hall said, “If you think of culture always as a return to roots — R-O-O-T-S — you’re missing the point. I think of culture as routes — R-O-U-T-E-S — the various routes by which people travel, culture travels, culture moves, culture develops, culture changes, cultures migrate, etc.” Roots | Routes is a series of animated shorts detailing different aspects of the Barbadian experience.
