The Painter of Jalouzi

Director: David Darg & Bryn Mooser | Countries of production: United States | Year: 2015 | Length: 5 min
Language: Creole with English subtitles

This beautiful short film tells the story of one citizen from Jalouzi, one of the largest slums in Haiti, who is determined to bring colour to the impoverished area by helping paint the entire town, literally.

Believing that colour has the power to transform his community, he’s helping to paint everywhere – on houses, on buses, and the entire hillside. Armed with brushes of bright blues, pastel pinks, and sunshine yellows, he’s helping to mobilise citizens of all ages, determined to turn the grey town into a rainbow full of colour to lead the way to a brighter Haiti.
