An electrifying, must-watch trailer for Asgar Leth‘s Ghosts of Cite Soleil (ThinkFilm, 6.27). Superb in all respects — ThinkFilm should adopt this as the U.S. trailer. Here’s my original review that ran in March ’06.
After that first screening, I wrote that “I now see Haiti as less of a Ground Zero for abstract political terror and more of a place where people on the bottom rung are trying to live and breathe and create their own kind of life-force energy as a way of waving away the constant hoverings of doom. In short, this excellent 88-minute film adds recognizable humanity to a culture that has seemed more lacking in hope and human decency than any other on earth.”
