Ayiti Mon Amour

2016

88 min
Three stories intertwine, collide and co-exist. A grieving teenager discovers he has a superpower, an old fisherman thinks the cure for his ailing wife can be found in the sea, and a muse struggles to exit the story her author is penning, in this magical neorealist fable set in a coastal village Haiti, five years after a devastating earthquake. AYITI MON AMOUR was Haiti’s first-ever submission to the Oscars.
