PRLog - Apr. 18, 2014 - LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- "Garifuna in Peril", the award-winning drama directed by Ali Allie & Ruben Reyes is now available on DVD.  The film offers an educational look at the Garifuna culture and history, while also evoking the themes and challenges all indigenous groups face:  that of retaining their land, culture, language and identity.

Shot in Honduras and the United States, with a cast of newcomers, "Garifuna in Peril" features 19 tracks of Garifuna music in its soundtrack, and 55% of the film's dialogue is in the Garifuna language, balanced with English and Spanish.  Subtitles are selectable on the DVD.

"A remarkable labor of love chronicling a teacher from L.A.'s earnest odyssey in search of his West African/Cari-Arawak Indian roots traceable to a rapidly-disappearing community living in a tiny village along the Honduran seacoast." - Kam Williams, Baret News.

"Garifuna in Peril is a terrific view for those seeking a different kind of cinema that informs, inspires and entertains. Already having played across the U.S. and in multiple countries, Garifuna in Peril brings to light the power of cinema to change the world that we live in." - Richard Propes, The Independent Critic

"Garifuna in Peril" is available now at Amazon.com and at http://www.garifunainperil.com/dvd

Who are the Garifuna?
The Garifuna are descendants of Carib, Arawak and West African people who live in the coastal regions of Central America (and more recently the United States). Since they refused to submit to slavery, the Garifuna managed to preserve both their African roots and their Amerindian heritage, a fusion resulting in a unique ethnicity considered indigenous to the Americas. In 2001, UNESCO proclaimed the language, dance and music of the Garifuna as a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
