HAITI - 2017 - 57 MINUTES

synopsis

Haiti is often poorly represented in the international press. Without denying the significant difficulties of this country, Paolo Woods, Italian photographer, is interested in other situations, with different issues such as the economic elite, the radios of the city of Les Cayes, the presence of American Protestants ...

From the exhibition of his work in Switzerland to the opening in Port-au-Prince, this film questions the gaze of foreigners on Haiti, the clichés that clutter the international gaze of this country, but also the way in which Haitians see themselves. The title of the film, "Look" in Creole, affirms a requirement: that of reciprocity, of an exchange of glances which allow a new approach to Haiti.
