Shortly after the 2010 Haitian earthquake that devastated the nation, The Production Foundry crossed paths with Haitian-American named David Pierre-Louis. David was searching for his mother after the quake, and determined to travel to Haiti to find her and do whatever he could to help with relief efforts.
What followed was an incredible story of reconnecting with his mother, perseverance, setbacks, and ultimately, success. David managed to rally a group of dedicated volunteers to travel to Haiti with him, raised thousands of dollars in relief aid, helped rebuild his mother’s house, and came up with a neighborhood community center proposal all by himself. Many more events have transpired in the intervening period but David continues his mission of rebuilding and fostering a sense of Haitian identity among himself and the diaspora.
The feature-length documentary is currently in post-production, with an expected release date of 2018.
