‘Pirates of the Caribbean film set looks like dump’

Head of the University of the West Indies (UWI) Open Campus in Trinidad and Tobago, Dr Lennox Bernard, is questioning why the Pirates of the Caribbean film set looks like a “dump”.{{more}}

While delivering the feature address at the graduation ceremony of the UWI Open Campus in St Vincent and the Grenadines last Friday at the Methodist Church Hall, Bernard asked whether the site should not be “something that we keep and develop”.

Bernard suggested that clips from the movie should be shown at the site and persons should pay a fee to enter the site.

Declaring that it is with “innovation that we will survive as a people,” Bernard said that we have to do things differently.

The Walt Disney blockbuster movie Pirates of the Caribbean – The curse of the Black Pearl was filmed in St Vincent and Grenadines in 2003. (VM)
