Douvan Jou Ka Levé

Based on her own experience and interweaving poetic narration with interviews, this personal documentary by Haitian filmmaker/actress Gessica Généus—the title translates as The Sun Will Rise— investigates the “disease of the soul” consuming her homeland. Taking on mental illness, Haiti’s history of turmoil, and the fraught divide between Vodou and Christianity, it’s is a moving meditation like no other.
