Port-au-Prince, Haiti , late 1940s and early 1950s. CIDIHCA.
This is a very beautiful (perhaps a touch too romanticized and poetic) video of Port-Au-Prince in the decades before the advent of Duvalier. It’s a very interesting piece, in part to see some of the city’s evolution. Also, it features very nice Haitian merengue for those interested in music. * I must say the video is narrated in French, but only seeing the images should capture the essence of the message.
Although I prefer to stay neutral with my opinions at all times, and we must remember this is only a selective piece of history, I there say this will contrast quiet sharply with what many of you are used to seeing.
