Synopsis

The 10 short films in the collection Owning Our Future: Haitian Perspectives in Film were made by Haitians from across the country. Their films provide a unique opportunity to experience Haiti as it is lived by street vendors, business women, artists, farmers and more. These stories nourish an understanding of the world that counteracts the relentless focus of western media on battlefronts, crises and disasters which leave core-causes and long-term development issues unaddressed or misunderstood. This project was a partnership between Haitian community media and development organizations, Community Supported Film and international NGOs.
