Visions of Haiti

A woman lies on the lap of another woman on a house porch

 A programme of films engaging with Haiti, drawn from across the history of cinema. 

This programme looks at how Haiti has been depicted across cinema from playing key roles in artist cinema of Maya Deren, demanding radical political change to exploring colonial legacies through indigenous Vodou culture. It covers some 70 years of material from the 1930s travelogues of Rudy Burckhard to award winning contemporary Haitian filmmakers Miryam Charles, Esery Mondesir and Gessica Généus.
