Bound by Haiti documentary debuts on the University of Florida campus

By

For the last year University of Florida filmakers Jon Bougher and Roman Safiullin followed the struggles of two activists to stay strong in the wake of the magnitude 7.0 earthquake which killed more than 200,000 Haitian people and the cholera epidemic which brokeout three months ago. As 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Courtenay Tucker reports, on the one year anniversary of the devastating earthquake, they hope their film will make viewers feel bound to Haiti as well. In addition to Gainesville, the film will be shown in Miami and Ft. Lauderdale this week as well as in Washington D.C. for the Congressional Black Caucus on the 13th.
