2012, Hélicotronc/Résonances, 81 min, Belgium/Haiti, Dir: Jonas D'Adesky

Director Jonas D'Adesky was documenting relief efforts in Haiti when he was inspired to create this fictional look at a disaster from a child’s point of view. 12-year-old Vitaleme and his two friends live in an orphanage in Port-au-Prince. Troubled by memories of work as a servant, the boy yearns to bust out of the home with his pals. The three find the freedom they seek when an earthquake hits; out on the street, they struggle to survive and gradually rebuild their lives. In Creole with English subtitles.
