Event Details

__

La  Belle  Vie (The  Good  Life)  is  a  story  of  self-discovery  as  Haitian-­‐American  filmmaker, Rachelle Salnave,  ventures  to  confront  the grace,  and  simultaneously  the  unseemliness,  of  her  native  ideologies.

Born  in  New  York  City and raised  by  an  upper  class  patriotic  Haitian  family forced  to  flee  their  island nation  in  adulthood,  Rachelle comes  of  age  in  the  midst  of  crossfire  between  two  distinct  cultures. The beliefs  of  her  nurturing  parents,  the  products of  noble  family histories,  juxtaposed  with  the  truth  of  her humble  working  class  reality  in  Harlem,  set  the  stage  for  an  inner  conflict  that  ultimately compels  her to  search  for  her  own  truth.

With  the  proliferation  of  political  turmoil,  poverty,  and  the  5th year  anniversary  of  the  earthquake  that shattered  Haiti,  this  film ultimately documents  the  filmmaker’s  burning  desire  to  find  a  collective  of people  who  manage  to  share  similar  identity  issues  but  who turn  love  for  their  country  as  motivation to create  change.
