DayBreak (Full Movie)(Barbados) BY S.A.MILLER (PRODUCTION) When we think of the local movie scene, such names as Shakirah Bourne, Marcia and Dave Weekes and Alison Saunders-Franklyn easily comes to mind; movies such as ‘Hit for six’, Chrissy and ‘Pay day’ captures the essence of the Barbadian landscape in a manner which would make the Hollywood producers sit up and take a serious look at what is happening this side of the globe within the international movie arena.
