In 2015 while living in the Cayman Islands, I co-produced and directed a 22 minute documentary with my friend and Cinematographer Rob Tyler entitled Bright Spot. If you’re interested in food culture and history or you’re coconut fanatic like I am, you should watch the film by clicking here.
Holistic nutritionist Tamer Soliman is inspired by “Bright Spots,” Jerry Sternin’s Idea that when we re-embrace successful, traditional practices that have fallen by the wayside, our communities and lives can change for the better.
The bright spot of the cayman islands is coconut oil, a food that modern research claims is one of the healthiest on the planet. Join Tamer as he interviews experts and the people of the Cayman Islands to discover why coconut oil has lost its place in many island homes, and how a modern population can be inspired to overcome the hurdles of the past and return this healthy, traditional oil to its kitchens.
The Cayman media followed us along as we made this documentary. Check out the links below to find out more about us and the documentary:
