Video: 'Schools in Haiti, a Difficult Situation! (2008)' Trailer

Director: Mario L. Delatour // Amistad Films

This short piece looks at the plight of young Haitian students and and the dreadful physical conditions of the schools that they attend.
In 2008 two poorly built schools in Port au Prince collapsed killing a number of students.
This tragedy called for greater state intervention in an unregulated school system where 80% of the schools are privately owned and operated. Schools built outside
of all normal standards and codes are now a menace to kids in Haiti.

This short film is narrated in English and was sponsored by Haiti’s Ministry of Education.

Festival and presentations:
Schools in Haiti, a difficult situation! aired on Channel 4 Miami, Florida.
