screening: fpn's "35 Seconds- Short Stories from Haiti"

My documenteur friend and his co-conspirators went down to Haiti a few months ago to bring back some stories from the folks drastically and tragically affected by the earthquake.  The result is this 13 min. doc about the 35 seconds of crisis: literally the fault-line between normal and the rest of their lives.  Amidst some heartbreakingly beautiful photography and music, there  are some surprising accounts (in Creole, subtitled in English) of just what went through some folks' heads when their world came crashing down and glimmers of hope for a people and a country rebuilding from the rubble.
