synopsis
In Haiti, ancestors say if something is foretold, it will happen no matter how, and nobody can change that. Artist Celeur is inspired by his Voodoo culture to create his sculptures, a reflection of the complex reality of the Caribbean country. The thoughts of the sculptor are framing the lives of Oriental, a waif youngster and Marah, who had to live by herself as a street kid in Port-au-Prince. A portrait of Haiti, and a vindication of the African roots of the country. I AM HAITI is the gateway to the Haitian trilogy directed by Raúl de la Fuente, shot during 2 months in Port-au-Prince. The Trilogy titles are: BAD CARD, TATTOO LOVE and ELLE.
