Apr. 10, 2013 – WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — (West Palm Beach, Florida, USA) – ID Vision Films announces the USA premiere of “Haiti Untold” a feature-length documentary taking us behind the scenes of the aftermath of Haiti’s 2010 Earthquake. The film presents an overview of progress in the country in the last 3 years and features Donna Karan (DKNY), George Laraque, retired pro hockey player, Sean Penn, founder and CEO of J/P Haitian Relief Organization (JPHRO) and other key organizations who played an important role during the first months of the response.
“We are pleased to bring the film to Palm Beach International Film Festival for its USA premiere, given the large Haitian diaspora here in Florida“ says the film’s co-director Isabelle Depelteau.
Haiti Untold also provides an unusual counter point-of-view of what is really happening in the country, looking at the impact of ‘first-world’ media bias on the “Haitian story”.

“We had great access to key players from organizations whose story has yet to be properly told in the media. But perhaps the most striking narrative is that of Jean marc Jean-François, a young Haitian man who speaks to the future of his country, the hopes and dreams of an emerging working class looking to build a future for themselves. It is time this story be told.” Says Dan Shannon, the film’s producer and co-director.
Haiti Untold screeners and private screening links are available to international buyers and press.
