Jun 1, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm| $14
In collaboration with the Caribbean Film Academy (CaFA), join Haiti Cultural Exchange for an exclusive sneak peek of the film, Ayiti Mon Amour by Guetty Felin.
Ayiti Mon Amour (AQ); A Magic Neo-realist Tale: Haiti, five years after the earthquake…. In a coastal town forgotten by the rest of the world, the sea is gaining ground and although the memories of the great disaster still haunt the villagers, life must go on. Shot in the mist and sunlight, Ayiti Mon Amour (AQ) is the story of old wounds that need healing in order to begin anew.
Guetty Felin is an award- winning Haitian- American filmmaker who has shared her life between America, Haiti and France. “Cinema is how I engage the world around me, how I denounce social and political injustice, how I explore haunting themes such as memory, exile, foreignness, and the unending search for home, while interconnecting our common global humanities.”
The 2nd Biennial Selebrasyon! is a festival of Haitian art and culture, showcasing the diversity, beauty and vitality of Haiti and its Diaspora – from the traditional to the modern. Selebrasyon! is New York City’s only festival dedicated to the promotion of the highest caliber film, dance, music, literature, and visual art of Haiti and its Diaspora.
