Direction : Matthieu Maunier-RossiProduction : Back in Town2018
A day in the life of a family of three men, in the great south of Haiti: a little boy – BENJAMIN, a teenager – DORVIL, and his father – SAINT-JUSTE; these three men are confronted with the incompatibility of their aspirations and they find themselves entangled together in the frustrations and contradictions of Haitian daily life. Between them, the tension is growing quickly…
