Oral history is at the heart of the preservation of ancient history and the theme for this series. We would like to work with a production team to capture rst person audio accounts from Haitians today. We would like to hear their version of the events from stories handed down over generations as well as their understanding of Vodun and their relationship with it in 2020.

Our goal is to combine these rst person testimonies and create a short lm that celebrates the rich African culture at the root of the revolution, but also of the lives of many Haitians today. The ancient beliefs of Vodun and other forms of African spirituality have been hijacked by Hollywood and the western media and discredited as primitive and dangerous. We would like to help to balance that view with an authentic Haitian perspective exploring the attitudes of people today and their relationship with Vodun spirituality and the Loa.
