A Memory Forgotten: A Generation Sacrificed

A Memory Forgotten – a story of exile, loss, and the complicity of the West in maintaining the Duvalier regime. But as always in life, there must be joy and here the joy is in remembering and family : – We feel the fear but we struggle anyway!

This short documentary is a portrait of Martine Duviella, whose parents were forced to flee Haiti during the Duvalier regime. Here, Duviella recounts the story of her activist father and through him seeks to retrieve the forgotten past of a generation that sacrificed itself trying to free Haiti.
