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.
