Owning Our Future – Haitian Perspectives in Film [Event]

IIIC HaitianFilmScreening

Join the Irish International Immigrant Center for a screening and discussion of short films made by Haitians during a training and production process led by Boston-based Community Supported Film. Haitian documentary filmmakers, with backgrounds in journalism, theater and poetry, provide a unique opportunity to experience Haiti as it is lived by street vendors, business women, artists, farmers and more. Their stories nourish an understanding of Haiti that goes beyond the western media’s focus on crises and disasters.
