Ayiti Toma, Land of the Living

Screening and director Q&A

Public screening of Ayiti Toma. The Land of the Living with filmmaker Joseph Hillel. Beyond Haiti, the country known for its natural disasters and humanitarian aid debacle, lies Ayiti Toma, “the country that is ours.” This documentary is an encounter with the magical Haitian people that arose from the darkness of slavery to create the first Black Republic. It presents Ayiti Toma, through Haitians, including politicians, intellectuals, vodou practitioners and youth from hard-hit neighborhoods of Port-au-Prince, and through anthropologists, historians and aid workers, including actor Sean Penn. A discussion with filmmaker Joseph Hillel followed.

This event is part of the 2015 Duke Haitian Film Series.
