LOOKING FOR LIFE
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7 @ 1PM

LOOKING FOR LIFE
SAT, Dec. 7 @ 1PM  Chapel
"Looking for Life" introduces the viewer to two women, Anne-Rose and Rosemene, who each one has their own particular way of battling through life. The former makes lunches in a factory yard in Port-au-Prince and sells her meals to the factory workers; the latter is employed in the same factory as a production worker making pullovers and T-shirts. Every day she buys her midday meal on credit from Anne-Rose. Through the connection between these two women the film shows part of their daily work and the constant battle for survival that they lead together with other women in Haiti. Going beyond this, however the film demonstrates the extent to which the importation of North American goods has brought about the collapse of Haitian regional production and ruined Haiti's economy. The connection between the two topics of the film reveals the significant role that Haitian women of today play in an economy that has been bled dry. Directed by Claudette Coulanges,  1999 60 min.,  Haiti/Germany, Documentary, Creole/ French/ English subt.
