Join us at the screening of the exciting new Haitian film Freda. Followed by a discussion with Dr Rachel Douglas, Haiti Support Group/Lecturer in French at the University of Glasgow, and Dr Sabine Cadeau, historian of the Caribbean (University of Cambridge)
Presented at the Cannes Film Festival and awarded the Prix du Film Francophone TV5 Monde 2021, Gessica Geneus’s film pays tribute to the youth of Haiti by painting a complex portrait of a woman. Following the precarious lives of Freda and her family, the film offers insight into the challenges of a country still paralysed by the 2010 earthquake.
