Sam Ellison — USAHaitiMexico — 2019 — 76'
Chèche Lavi is a lyrical portrait of two Haitian migrants, Robens and James, who find themselves stranded at the US-Mexico border with no way forward and no one to depend on but each other. The quiet, unexpected tenderness of their friendship shines in the eye of
an incomprehensible geopolitical storm, even as the two men drift towards drastically different futures… and a new wall rises on the horizon.
