Hope for Haiti

A friend of ours is co-producing a documentary on Haiti called Repiblik: each voice has a story to tell. This has been a four year labor of love, and if all goes well the finished film will be released in 2009. In the words of the filmmakers:

For those who are unfamiliar with the story of Repiblik, it is a unique social media project (created in 2004) not only highlighting the rich aspects of Haiti’s forgotten past, but also documenting the present efforts of Haitians at home and abroad who choose to fight for the future of their country—who continue to have espwa (hope) and believe that change is possible. Our vision is that Repiblik will educate our audiences on the value of Haiti’s history, culture and people, and attract further resources (primarily human) to accelerate the changes already taking place in Haiti.

You can watch the trailer and learn more about the project at their website.
