Ayiti Mon Amour, a film by Haitian filmmaker Guetty Felin has been drawing praise all over the film festival circuit. The films centers on the lives of three individuals: a young man who’S going through a semi-rebellious phase, and a fisherman helping his beloved wife battle an unknown disease, and a novel character trying to evade an actor. Their lives seem so disconnected, but Fellin’s script will bring them together somehow.
Ayiti Mon Amour features some really nice views of Haiti and its colonial architecture, not to mention some views of the sea and fishermen wharves.
Ayiti Mon Amour has been screened at the Toronto International Film Festival as well as the Curaçao film festival to maximum acclaim. Felin is being heralded by critics as a voice in post-2010 Haitian cinema. The talent roster in the film Jaures Andris, Joakim Cohen, Anisia Uzeyman are all first-time actors and what talent they display!
Felin previously directed a feature film through her BelleMoon Productions film company entitled A Rooster in the Fire Escape.
