Appearance by director Gessica Généus

 
Douvan Jou Ka Leve

Dir. Gessica Généus
2017, 51min

 

In this textured and surprising personal documentary, Haitian filmmaker and actress Gessica Généus undertakes a journey to understand what she calls Haiti’s “illness of the soul”—the country’s fraught religious divide between Vodou and Christianity. With her mother’s bipolarity as her poignant point of departure, Généus skilfully interweaves traditional interviews and ethnographic-style observation with poetic narration as she seeks to connect the dots of her family’s, and her island’s, fractured history. The result is a moving meditation on both mental illness and a nation’s as-yet unassuaged inner turmoil.

 
The Crying Conch

Dir. Vincent Toi
2017, 20min

 

A man is drawn into following in the footsteps of the historic Haitian slave leader Mackandal, who is trapped in a curse which started centuries ago.
