The Haitian Polo Documentary is a documentary base on the young Haitian Immigrants experience in Brooklyn New York during the 80's and 90's in regards to acculturating and assimilating into the mainstream culture. Featuring Thirstin Howl The 3rd (Original Lo-Life Founder and Hip Hop Artist), Sadat X From 90's Hip Hop Group Brand Nubian, and Moses "Rafe" Vernau of the hit web series Money & Violence!

Come for the official South Florida screening and stay for the panel discussion featuring some of the hottest names in the Haitian community.

Directed by DJ, business owner, and film producer DJ Scripz, The Haitian Polo Documentary is an enlightening and engaging look into the lives of a marginalized group. With thousands of Haitian immigrants fleeing the violence and corruption in their home country, DJ Scripz recounts the social barriers and discrimination that greeted Haitians in the Big Apple. As both a way to assimilate and a way to reclaim the bourgeoisie clothing choice of the time, the polo shirt, the documentary explores how style (“flyness”), culture, and identity play roles in the lives of Haitians. “Call me names…but you can never be flyer than me,” one Haitian proclaims in the movie, reminiscing about a time when both status and style reigned.

Since the documentary’s recent Tribeca Film Festival debut, DJ Scripz has made appearances on Power 105, HOT 97, and Industry Rules to discuss the successful piece.
