"takes an active political stance on women's oppression in working-class communities."
- Ute Buesing, The City Sun
"[The] film shapes a generalised image of the conditions of low pay, burdensome hard work, isolation and powerlessness of women within a patriarchal system, in this instance exemplified by the Sugar Cane Belt and its system of management. But it leaps beyond this to a demonstration of the strenght of women... In Sweet Sugar Rage the view is from the inside and unlike earlier documentaries that imaged the Caribbean as a place of consumption, and as an object of the gaze in ways too diverse to mention here, the camera seeks here to give a truthful representation of the actual lived existence of the Caribbean woman in one of her many faces. It attempts to show what it truly means to be a working class Jamaican woman working in the cane fields in the nineteen eighties."
