Directed by Guetty Felin | 2016

Haitian-born filmmaker Guetty Felin invokes past and present in this portrait of a small fishing hamlet still reeling in the wake of the earthquake that devastated the island in 2010. This neorealist fairytale follows the intersecting lives of an awkward teenager who discovers he has a special power gained from the sea, an old fisherman caring for his ailing wife, and the main character in an unfinished novel.

Ayiti Mon Amour is preceded by Papa Machete (2014), a short film directed by Jonathan David Kane.

This screening is part of the Caribbean Film Series, which presents feature films made by Caribbean filmmakers that highlight the richness, uniqueness, and viability of Caribbean cinema to Brooklyn, home to the largest population of Caribbean nationals in the United States, and to all New York City residents and visitors.  For more information visit the Caribbean Film Academy website.
