Festival of Caribbean Cinema in Haiti
A special film program on Haiti will take place from June 10th through the 17th at Havana’s Infanta Movie Theater, as part of the travelling festival of Caribbean cinema.
The program will begin with the cartoon Ame noire, from Canada-Haiti, shot in 2000 and directed by Martine Chartrand, according to the announcement by the Cuban Film Institute. Also scheduled is the Cuban documentary Jacques Roumain: The Passion of a Country, by Arnold Antonin, which focuses on the history and culture of Haiti, the land of writer Jacques Roumain, the life and work of whom is its central theme. Haiti trembles, produced in 2010 and directed by Claude Mancuso, presents images and details on the events of February 12, 2010, in Haiti, when the earthquake that devastated the fraternal country took place.
Haiti Cherie, a film directed by Claudio Del Punta, is set on the groups of humble houses built next to sugar cane fields in the Dominican Republic. It reflects the life of sugar cane cutters, most of them immigrants coming from Haiti.
