7197: Re: 7181: Chercher la vie-Looking for Life screening-4/14 (fwd)
I warmly recommend Chercher la Vie. If you miss the screening,
you can purchase a video copy of the film for 500U$ through
firstname.lastname@example.org. It is worth it!
The pots referred to by Tequila are made in La Saline, and the
beautiful landscapes are from around Furcy. The great market
scenes are from la Croix des Bossales.
The film has won international acclaim and has just been presented
at a film festival in Burkina Faso. I think that what contributes to
the very special atmosphere in the film is the fact that Claudette
Coulanges herself is Haitian - and a woman. She sits quietly in a
La Saline kitchen, asking the woman (Sorry, I forget the name) a
few questions about the food she is preparing, and you are just
_there_. It is a very unpretentious and fascinating film.
