Grenada: The Maroon Spirit was filmed on the island of Grenada in the eastern Caribbean in November 2004, two months after Hurricane Ivan "mashed up" the island. The film documents the massive destruction a class 3 hurricane can bring to a small island nation. Hurricane Ivan destroyed or damaged 90% of people's homes. Rich or poor, young or old, none were spared. This is a story of hope. It documents the amazing story of the people coming together in their neighbourhoods and communities to rebuild their nation. They credit Hurricane Ivan with rekindling the historical tradition of the “Maroon Spirit”. It situates Hurricane Ivan as another event in Grenada's turbulent history. Meet a people who have endured hurricanes, earthquakes, civil war, revolution and invasions yet have managed to keep both their sense of humor and humanity.
