Haiti. Untitled

Jørgen Leth, Denmark, 1996

82 min.DK/Documentary

Jørgen Leth has made Haïti his second home for a number of years. In his cinema verité-style, he delves into Haïti's past and present to explore the nation's crazy quilt of non-fiction fiction, fantastic realism, voodoo, myth, mystery and bare-knuckled politicts. All the while, Leth is on the alert, looking, listening, but avoiding the common trap of making righteous political and social statements.
