In his new film, Haitian movie director Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished – a radical narration about race in America, using the writer’s original words. He draws upon James Baldwin’s notes on the lives and assassinations of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr. to explore and bring a fresh and radical perspective to the current racial narrative in America.
‘Everything But A Man’, starring Haitian actor Jimmy Jean-Louis, will premiere at the 20th annual ABFF (American Black Film Festival). The movie, which is produced by Jean-Louis, has also received 6 nominations at the festival including:
Based on the book “Clinton Cash” by Peter Schweizer, Clinton Cash documentary investigates the donations made to the Clinton Foundation by foreign entities, paid speeches made by Bill and Hillary Clinton, and the Clintons’ personal enrichment since leaving the White House in 2001.
Crazy Hood Film has released the official trailer for the documentary “Coming Home: Haiti.” Shot in Haiti, Coming Home Haiti documentary weaves and explores a look into Haitian hip hop, also known as “Rap Creole” (rap Kreyòl), which is a relatively a new genre of music that has been manifesting itself in Haitian culture since the early 1980s.
The documentary follow suit, perceiving the value in expression and musicality that rap inherently possesses the same way that many U.S. hip hop artists began in impoverished and lower-class neighborhoods.

From the acclaimed director of the Haitian psychological thriller “Natalie”, “Sarah 2: Le péché de la mère” looks legitimately creepy, and quite good.
Since it’s directed by Samuel Vincent, I’m sure it will combine solid jump scares, an emotionally resonant plot and smart cinematography. Definitely worth seeing.
