I myself have many mixed feelings about Haitian cinema. I will admit there are a few movies i like, only one comes to mind now : "Pluie Despoir" (Great movie). I laugh sometimes, when certain Haitian producers, directors, say: they are upset that people are bootlegging their products. Now, first of all you must consider the quality, and messages the movies are protraying. Many of these producers may claim how much they love Haiti, but how are you helping Haiti, with it's image. As of today Haiti is 208 years old, one can find a great amount of history within 208 years. Why don't you guys make films on our four fathers : Alexandre Sabes Petion, Toussaint Louverture, Jean Pierre Boyer, and Jean Jacques Dessalines. You may realize i've highlighted Toussaint L'ouverture, reason being there was a movie made on him. I belive it came out last year starring Jimmy Jean Louis as Toussaint. OK, why was this film made in France, in french. I sure the as least a small amount of French people know of Toussaint ( i would hope so, Napolean and his army invaded Haiti some 300 years ago). Why was'nt this movie made in english to educate the American people, of the history of the country that helped them gain their independence: HAITI ! There are so many movies that could be made on our history. A movie about Charlemagne Peralte, Charles and Sanite Belair (husband and wife that fought in the war of independence). Jean Baptiste Pointe du Sable (founder of Chicago).


Am i the only one that feels this way ?

KMers talk to me.

please excuse my writing, i just started writing without organizing my thoughts correctly.

U have raised some good points but, bagay yo pa osi fasil kew panse a.
before making a movie about our ancestors, we must have the funds to do it.
U'll prob think that I am a movie producer, no, i played n some (haitian n also short american school project.) and I co-produced one. I can tell u that things are not that easy, I could go all day trying to xplain to u. One of the greatest guy we now have in making haitian music video was the one who did the first movie I played in, he wld tell u things aren't easy in the movie industry.
li tap pibon ke yon full producer repon ou but as an example
I co produced a movie called " LA VIE DE JOB" HOPE MWEN PA VIOLE CODE BOARD LA MR. PAT
we have done all the shooting in archaie haiti to do the decor, costume etc paye machin pou acteur yo, lwe delco etc,,, li ba nou yon dete 85mil gdes an plus de plus ke 115 mil goud ke nou depanse ou pral dim li pa anpil kob men le ou ajoute billet avion ak ship materiel epi lwe kran ak light pou on mwa ale haiti epi pote yo vini isit ou ka santi konbien sa fe zanmi.
At the end of it people like it but------- yep u guessed it they copied the products. not only distributors copied it but customers, even friends ;;;;;
bagay yo anpil frem trust me....

I didnt look much about the producers paske menm jan avem mte panse se yon devwa li taye pou minister de la culture ta lance yon project konsa fe konkou pou meilleur script ak mis en scene epi chwasi best project la epi finanse film lan ki tap rete yon patrimoine national.

MIZIK NAN SANM, Merci pou komante'w. Mwen realize ke ou gin rezon. Repons ou fem we problem nan. Ou konnen, mwen dako ke yo pa gin kob pou fe fim sa yo, nan mem tan mwen pa dako. Gade tout prodikte yo, ou we fim yo mete deyor, gin nan yo ki bon men, anpil nan yo se preske mem "Story line" mem Suje. Moun kap fe fim sa yo, yo gin kob, yap fe fim. Yo ka esseye fe fim sou Ayiti. Ou mensyoné yon tre bon fim ke ou paticipe ladan'l :
"LA VI DE JOB" mes compliments. Mwen we fim sa. AYAYAY, se pa de bel Istwa Peyi nou-an Ayiti bel non fre'm ! Mwen swete nan futur, bagay sa ka chaje.


Kounye-a, bagay sa nan men Bondye, tout bagay nan men Bondye, se li mem selman kon sa kap rive.
