"Madan Sara" Online Screening


 Visual Studies     Nov 21 2020 | 8:00 AM - 8:00 AM Online Screening

Fanm on Films in collaboration with Film and Media Studies, Visual Studies, The Humanities Center, The Haitian Ladies Network and Moun Lakay is pleased to present the US premiere of the film “Madan Sara.” The Madan Sara documentary tells the stories of these indefatigable women who work at the margins to make Haiti’s economy run. Despite facing intense hardship and social stigma, the hard work of the Madan Sara puts their children through school, houses their families, and helps to ensure a better life for generations to come. This film amplifies the calls of the Madan Sara as they speak directly to society to share their dreams for a more just Haiti.

The screening will be followed by a discussion moderated by Ella Turenne (Visual Studies) and Martine Jean (Film Bug Podcast) featuring “Madan Sara” director Etant Dupain and contributor and MacArthur Fellow Edwidge Danticat.
