Serenade for Haiti
Filmed over a seven-year period in Haiti, Serenade For Haiti captures a rare look at a country scored with poverty and a history of political violence and finds a story of transcendence and great humanity. This documentary follows the extraordinary children and faculty of the Sainte Trinité Music School as they turn to music to unlock the power of their own lives. When a catastrophic earthquake completely destroys the school in 2010, a devastated faculty and student body must pick up the pieces and find a way to adapt. Journeying into Haiti’s beautiful and diverse rural regions and venturing deep into the streets of Port-au-Prince before and after the 2010 earthquake, Serenade for Haiti brings to the screen an unforgettable and vivid tableau of this widely misunderstood country.
