A feature-length documentary film

The stories and news about Haiti are often about natural disasters, suffering and political crises, and historically, the collective view of Haiti as a predominantly black nation, fails to recognize the incredibly diverse realities that existed, from the country’s inception.


We seek to challenge and dispel this victimization narrative of the Haitian experience.

The collective view of Haiti as a predominantly black nation fails to recognize the incredibly diverse realities that existed from the country’s inception. Actually, many Haitians in Haiti and around the world are made up of any mixture of Africans, Americans, Spanish, British, Canadians, French, Arabs, Germans, Indians, Chinese, Jewish, Polish and Italians.

Castles in Haiti will tell the many stories of how dreams and hope can come true and how culturally and ethnicity interconnected we all are and illustrate how remarkably successful the Haitian diaspora have been collectively all around the world. The projects goals are to challenge and dispel this victimization narrative of the Haitian experience, revitalize the ethnic beauty and diversity of the Haitian people.
This project is in its infancy, and as such, we are still raising funds to develop and produce the project. We are all super excited to film this project next year, but we cannot do it without you!  Please follow us on social media.



The documentary will be filmed by edward r. Murrow award  and Emmy award winning producers.
