About the Film: A Better Place tells the story of five community- based organizations through the work that they do and how their experiences in diverse communities and areas impacts their view of the world.
Infused with local music, stunning visuals complement stories of hope, resilience and survival. The film also features musical performances from home- grown talent.
The film takes the viewer to five communities in Trinidad & Tobago where people are doing great things, charting their own course and inspiring others to do the same. Each of the featured organizations are also supported by UNDP GEF SGP.
