Day 02 - Haitian Filmmaker speaks out!

Today was a great day as we were able to connect with Réginald A. Chevalier, an experienced Haitian filmmaker and prolific voice among the artistic community, both in Haiti and abroad.

I would not be saying enough if I told you that his perspective on the state of Haitian cinema was both incredibly informed and powerfully persuasive. After eating a lovely meal, he showed us some of his work. How wonderful to see such talent, artistic sensibility, and panache!

Upon returning from lunch, Réginald was gracious enough to grant us an interview (which we filmed). Not only did he masterfully articulate his position, he was also kind enough to answer a few of my own questions regarding the nature of what we are doing with The Caribbean Institute of Media Technologies. Look for his interview, soon to be posted to our video podcast.
