This documentary features Dany Laferrière on a journey to the places that have shaped his life, from Montréal, Paris, New York, and Port-au-Prince back to the mythical Haitian fisher village of his childhood, Petit-Goâve. It includes encounters with major Caribbean literary figures such as Edwidge Danticat, Frankétienne, and Pedro Juan Gutiérrez and presents a reflection on the Haiti of today and yesterday as much as a fascinating cinematic journey, leading us into the heart of the writer’s imagination. In French with English subtitles. Dany Laferrière is scheduled to be present.
