CARNIVAL IS MORE THAN A CELEBRATION, IT'S A REBELLION!
IVAN LARAMONDIER is the current director of Martinique's carnival celebrations. Hold on! His explanation of the historical origins of Martinique's carnival and by extension, of other carnival celebrations in the Caribbean and the Western Hemisphere implies that Carnival is not only a celebration, it's a rebellion/! In his impassioned view, which went on well after the camera was turned off, he shows how Martinique has influenced many of the carnival celebrations.
