But when a shocking revelation in Randi’s personal life is discovered, it isn’t clear whether Randi is still the deceiver – or the deceived

filmmaker Rachelle Salnave's personal journey to Haiti and her past

La Belle Vie:  The Haitian Bourgeois Society on Screen   

My Grandmother was a beautiful woman who truly understood the dynamics of the Haitian Bourgeois society in Haiti. Growing up in Les Cayes (the Southern region of the Island), Grandma was determined to be educated but knew education alone would not get her into the upper crust club of Pétionville's (Port au Prince's Suburb) high society. Dreaming of living a life free from restrictions, her dream came true when she met my Grandfather, Raoul Berne, a wealthy businessman. Grandpa didn't waste anytime marrying my Grandmother who already had 2 children from a previous marriage. He went against the rules of his social class and followed his heart. Grandma was instantly inducted into the Bourgeois club but it came with a price. Dark skin with no family name, "Who was this woman?" most people asked. Why did she hide her family's identity? Why did she deny her identity in her search of La Belle Vie or did she cleverly defeat the system?

 

The Art of the Machete 


Alfred Avril used his religion, the natural herbs and the knowledge of his ancestors to preserve what very little know in today's generation about the Art of Machete fencing. While, parts of this art form can be found in other Afro-centric martial art movement's across the African Diaspora, such as Capoeria, origins of this affiliation can only be assumed that the art of Haitian machete fencing came from the roots of Africa and the Haitian revolution. With very little money or support from local government to sustain this historic art form, his passion to conserve this history to the residents has caught the attention of some Foreigner's ready to help spread his message to the world.

The Story of Seeds

April 26 2PM

 

 

 

 

dir.  M. Sean Kaminsky, Documentary Unrated, USA, English, 2015, 82 min.

One of the world's most precious resources is at risk. This film will help others learn what is at stake and what can be done to protect the source of nearly all our food: SEEDS. While the price of gold and oil skyrockets the fate of our most priceless commodity is ignored. Seeds provide the basis for everything from fabric, to food to fuels. They are as essential to life as the air we breathe or water we drink... but given far less attention. Over the past one hundred years, seeds have steadily shifted from being common heritage to sovereign property. This film tells the story of seeds by following the challenges and triumphs of some of their most tireless stewards and advocates.
