Selebrasyon! | Film Screening : Wednesday, June 1st

Ayiti Mon Amour 4

Join us for an exclusive screening of the critically acclaimed film Ayiti Mon Amour. Presented in collaboration with the Caribbean Film Academy (CaFA), the Brooklyn Cinema Collective, and BAM Cinematek.

In a small fishing hamlet forgotten by the rest of the world, the sea is gaining ground and although the memories of the great disaster still lingers, life and love must prosper and survive in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. Several characters try to make sense of their own existence, including a teenager studying Japanese who is bullied for being light-skinned, a writer and his muse who are grappling with their identities, an old fisherman caring for his ailing wife. With demonstrations against corruption becoming as commonplace as fisherman fighting for their livelihood, the hopes and fears of the Haitian people collide at a critical moment in their history.

Written & Directed by award-winning Haitian-American filmmaker Guetty Felin.

Q & A with the Director, Actors, and Special Guests to follow the screening. 

“AYITI MON AMOUR,” was a Yellow Robin Award nominee at the 2016 Curacao International Film Festival Rotterdam, where it made its World Premiere. Its U.S. Premiere was at the 2016 San Francisco International Film Festival.
