Bound by Haiti documentary debuts on the University of Florida campus


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.

From Gainesville with Love and Jacmel Haiti

From Gainesville With Love, a part of the Sister City Program, hosted Haitian visitors in a cultural exhibition that introduced locals to traditional Voodoo rituals through live mural paintings and music. The partnership between the two groups was formed to educate the two cities about each other by bringing artists and volunteers from Gainesville to Jacmel and Jacmel to Gainesville. Jacmel was once the capital of the french colonial empire, which is one of Haiti’s only tourist cities and has been called Haiti’s cultural capital.
