New Film from CSFilm’s Haiti Program Coordinator

September 6, 2016

From Abricots Haiti – Light in their Eyes

CSFilm Haiti Program Coordinator Ralph Thomassaint Joseph directed this new film in collaboration with the camera and editing assistance of CSFilm training coordinators and assistant trainers Jude Stanley Roy and Evens Louis.  The film was commissioned by the French and US non-governmental organization Haiti Futur which supports education in Haiti through technology.

From a filmmaking perspective, CSFilm is extremely pleased to see this collaborative work coming out of the training in 2014.  It is also encouraging to see that the film’s structure emphasizes scene-based visual storytelling, supported by interviews, rather than interviews supported with pictures. This is a fundamental principle of our training in documentary storytelling.  Congratulations to the makers.

What was emphasized during the discussion is that it is up to those that believe in the US as a nation of immigrants, to counter the lies and misinformation that is permeating the current dialogue about new immigrants and refugees in the US. It is incumbent on all of us to speak out against xenophobia and hatred toward the newest members of our communities.
