Dir. Edson Jean | 2021, 80min
With Shein Mompremier, Alan Myles Heyman, Madelin Marchant

“Resting is for people who work for themselves.” Those are the weary words of Ludi, an exhausted, hardworking nurse willing to do whatever it takes, including working extra shifts at the hospital and in-home care jobs on the side, to support her family back in Haiti. Chasing the American Dream in Miami’s Little Haiti neighborhood, Ludi unflappably battles coworkers, clients, and an impatient bus driver—until she eventually reaches her limit. Showcasing a fantastic central performance in Shein Mompremier, Edson Jean’s debut is an incisive, utterly compelling character study of personal sacrifice, immigrant striving, and the importance of knowing one’s self-worth.

Post-screening Q&A with writer/director Edson Jean.

This event includes closed captioning.
