Description:
  [Screening @ Tiburon Film Society]

CULTURE CLASH seeks to fill the void of the narrative of the contrasting voice of young people and adults who were born in other countries and relocated to the United States or were born in the United States to immigrant parents. The film documents their journey, which can lead to personal growth and self-acceptance.

The emphasis of CULTURE CLASH features how well young people meld into their new America identity and what contributions Caribbean American make to American society. Second-generation children often come into conflict with their immigrant parents because they adopt more of American culture and break away from the traditions of their parents.

In recent years, immigrant communities have stayed in closer communication with their homelands through cable and satellite television and the internet. While this makes it possible for the second generation to retain a stronger ethnic identity, at the same time, television, movies, and the Internet create a powerful homogenizing force, pulling the children of immigrants into American mass culture.
