HAITI

by Rudy BURCKHARDT
1938 / 16mm / b&w / sound / 1S / 15' 08




“Burckhardt’s travelogue of Port-au-Prince is a unique city symphony whose pace and rhythm favor tropical island life. He does not focus on voodoo but on Haiti’s daily life, neighbors, jokes, gossip, small dramas, Saturday night dances, and ghost stories,” evoking a place where time seems to stand still.” —Bruce Posner
