Video: Shia Muslims of Haiti

The documentary "Shia of Haiti", a short film focused on the aftermath of the horrific January 12th, 2010 earthquake.

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

On January 31st 2010, two American Muslims set out on a mission to help a community of hundreds in the earthquake torn country of Haiti. A mission which began solely as a humanitarian effort turns into a spiritual awakening for the two in a weeks span in a shattered land.

Equipped with only a camcorder they documented their journey as they interviewed locals, engaged in heartbreaking conversations, and photographed a devastated Haiti, which is in a desperate need of help!
