Haiti Now! Film Festival at U.W.I.

An interesting review of the Haiti Now! Seminar which happened earlier this year at the University of the West Indies' St-Augustine campus in Trinidad. This is not the freshest news but there have been some misunderstandings between anglophone West Indians and Haitians over Caricom and its role in Haiti so this kind of cultural effort for mutual understanding is worth noting. The seminar, which appears to be recurring, credits itself partially for the post-2004 surge in films on Haiti. Note the bredth of haitian filmmakers presented: the roster actually includes filmmakers who reside in the country.
