CSFilm commemorates the 6th anniversary of the Haiti earthquake by sharing Haitian voices and visions. Take less than 10 minutes a day to watch a Haitian-made film. Learn from and share Haitian perspectives.

Today, Haitian female filmmaker Muselene Carilus brings us the story of a Haitian business woman, mentor, mother and auto-mechanic:

In an industry dominated by men, a mother and wife excels in auto repair, breaking common perceptions of the role of women in Haitian society.
