A transcendent documentary, tracing the devastation of Haiti’s 2010 earthquake and its aftermath, illustrating the incredible power of music, art and education
Sainte Trinité Music School in the heart of Port-au-Prince, Haiti thrived despite decades of entrenched poverty and political strife. When a catastrophic earthquake destroyed the school in 2010, a stunned and devastated faculty and student body had to pick up the pieces and find a way to move forward.
Filmed over a seven-year period that began before the earthquake, this richly detailed documentary by Bay Area director Owsley Brown weaves a story of transcendence and great humanity as it illustrates the incredible power of music, art and education to hold together one community through tragedy, upheaval and uncertainty.
