Soleil Films presents,Nou La Toujou! A Celebration of Haiti! (Nou La Toujou), a special event showcasing the artistry of Haiti, while creating awareness and an appreciation for its history. This year’s theme is,Remembering the past, Living the now, & Building the future, giving our audience an opportunity to experience the culture of Haiti through film,theater,the incredibly colorful music, food and fine art that the best artists from Haiti have to offer.
Nou La Toujou will also feature discussion panels and workshops that are sure to engage and enlighten. The 2-day event will be held in Hollywood, California, in June 2012. We are in talks with several major theaters and hotels for possible venues. Nou La Toujou, means, “We are still here.” We feel this term embodies the spirit and fortitude of the Haitian people, especially in light of the recent tragic earthquake of January 2010. Haitians are strong, and historically the nation has seen its share of wars, strife,and struggle. Regardless of the obstacles, Haitians still rise valiant and strong. That’s why our log line is:“Though the ground may open up, we are still here.”“Mem si téya ouvri,Nou La Toujou!”
