Broken Stones

The oldest area in Port-au-Prince was the most damaged by the January 2010 earthquake that devastated Haiti. Broken Stones observes everyday life as it resumes amid the ruins of the once beautiful and grand cathedral. Affectionately called Notre Dame de Port-au-Prince, it is a potent metaphor for the fractured psyche of the Haitian people. The congregation gathers to pray, children play games and musicians bring out their instruments, some express anger at the slow reconstruction, and others ponder what angered God in this impressionistic, beautiful film.
