Bright Spot - Coconut oil

Get an oil change!

Filmmakers Rob Tyler and Tamer Soliman, a holistic nutritionist, are inspired by “bright spots,” Jerry Sternin's idea that when we re-embrace successful, traditional practices that have fallen by the wayside, our communities and lives can change for the better. The bright spot of the Cayman Islands is coconut oil, a food that modern research claims is one of the healthiest on the planet. Through interviews with nutritional experts, local farmers and historical and political consultants, discover why coconut oil has lost its place in many island homes, and how a modern population can be inspired to overcome the hurdles of the past and return this healthy, traditional oil to its kitchens.
