“I insert myself in my country’s power of love.” The words are those of Haiti-born Montrealer Alain Philoctète; they open Will Prosper’s film against a backdrop of beautiful Haitian landscapes. A film between two countries, two realities, two struggles, united by destiny and the indomitable will of Philoctète – artist, researcher, activist. Driven by this inspiring protagonist, the film documents his return to Haiti, where he hopes to launch a permaculture project. It’s also a chance to talk about his exile and his passion for sharing knowledge. Back in Montreal, the struggle takes on a personal character. Diagnosed with cancer, he follows his dreams with the support of his family and friends. Through him, the filmmaker creates an unforgettable tribute to community spirit. (RIDM 2019, BD)
