Ayiti Mon Amour, by filmmaker Guetty Felin (Haiti)


This dramatic feature is a magical neo-realist tale of how a teenager, an old fisherman, and the lead character in a novel being written by a writer with writerโ€™s block all deal with the struggles in their lives, in the wake of the 2010 Haiti earthquake. The film premiered in the U.S. at the Los Angeles Film Festival, and internationally in competition (Yellow Robin Competition) at the Curacao International Film Festival Rotterdam, and the Toronto International Film Festival.
