Cinemalliance – Haitian Corner

April 23, 2018 @ 6:00 pm

This early film of Raoul Peck tells the story of a Haitian immigrant in New York who becomes obsessed with finding the man who tortured him on behalf of the Duvaliers. Convinced that his torturer is also in New York, this tormented soul quits his job, alienates his friends and his family, and ruins his chances of a love relationship with a beautiful and caring childhood friend. The movie is a bit too long, and the cinematography, at least the version I saw, was very grainy, with very hard to read subtitles (the film is in Haitian Creole, for the most part). Nevertheless, the movie is well worth watching for anyone who is a fan of Raoul Peck, as well as for a unique insight into a world seldom revealed on film.
