YOU ARE INVITED BY THE GUADELOUPE REGIONAL FILM COMMISSION AND THE GUADELOUPE TOURIST BOARD TO DISCOVER GUADELOUPE!
The Guadeloupe Reception and Resource Office performs a general interest mission to facilitate filming and/or post-production on its territory and access to local resources, whatever the type of production (feature length films, short films, televised fictions, documentaries, animated films, advertisements, institutional films, etc.). Death in Paradise, the popular lighthearted crime drama television series, is entirely filmed on the Caribbean islands of Guadeloupe.
Guadeloupe’s privileged geographic situation in the heart of the Caribbean basin makes it an essential contact for cinema and audiovisual production in the Caribbean. It is available for both French and foreign professionals and offers information and assistance services to cinema and audiovisual professionals which are provided free of charge.
Come watch films shot in Guadeloupe. Discover the island and, if you are a filmmaker, find out the services available to you in Guadeloupe to shoot your next film!

He desperately seeks the help of Hilaire, a wizard and notorious drunk, who ensures his protection. However, the spirit Hilaire sends to Pascal will cause a bigger mess than planned.
