CCC launches short film "Haitian Paintings: The Land - The People - The History"

In observance of the International Year to Commemorate the Struggle Against Slavery and its Abolition, the General Secretary of the Caribbean Conference of Churches (CCC), is pleased to invite you to the premiere screening of the CCC short film, "Haitian Paintings: The Land - The People - The History".

The screening will be held at the First Floor Seminar Room of the National Library in Port of Spain on Wednesday, July 28, 2004 starting at 6:00 p.m. and followed by cocktails.

Haitian Paintings is an expression of the CCC's ongoing commitment to accompany the churches and the people of Haiti in their struggles for freedom and self-reliance.

A CCC-led team visited Haiti in November 2003 with a view to understanding Haiti better and sharing those perspectives with others. During that visit, the team interviewed many influential persons and organizations in Haiti . Independent film producer, Ernest "Che" Rodriguez weaves those discussions into a narrative on Haiti told by Haitians abroad and at home - and by regional experts.

Diverse themes are explored including leadership, politics, democracy, the role of religion in Haiti 's development and her relationships with CARICOM neighbours.
