MUFF: Ayiti Toma – The Land of the Living
Beyond the country that overcame slavery to become the first Black Republic, beyond the country that has survived numerous natural disasters lies Ayiti Toma, 'the country that is ours.' The documentary bearing this name aspires to present this lesser known, more inclusive Ayiti as it is told by the Ayitians themselves be they intellectuals or practitioners of voodoo. With the additional input of anthropologists, historians and aid workers (including Sean Penn), this documentary illustrates that the extraordinary culture of this 'magical people' must be taken into account if Ayiti Toma, the land of the living, is to come into being.
