Visions of Haiti

A man wearing a wide brimmed hat smokes a cigarette and stares directly into the camera

Said to be the first Haitian feature length film, Arnold Antonin's compelling and powerful documentary delves into the rich and tumultuous history the first independent black republic in the world.

A characteristically unflinching, militant film from one of Haiti’s most famed documentarians, Arnold Antonin, who has for 50 years been crafting polemical films documenting Haiti’s past and present.

With a keen eye for historical detail and a deep sense of cultural pride, Antonin takes viewers on an immersive journey through the struggles and triumphs of this Caribbean nation.

The film weaves together a tapestry of historical events, starting with the tumultuous era of colonisation, slavery, and rebellion. Antonin masterfully brings to life the stories of courageous freedom fighters, including Toussaint Louverture and Jean-Jacques Dessalines, who led the Haitian Revolution and shattered the chains of enslavement
