4.0 out of 5 stars A good short introduction to Haitian Vodou February 12, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I'm pleased with the manner in which this short documentary approaches Haiti and it's beliefs and customs. While the tendency to focus on Haiti's troubles is irresistible to any filmmaker or author, and this is no exception to that, the information is pretty accurate and provides a correct portrayal of Haitian life.

Granted, life from Port au Prince to Jacmel and into the somewhat remote villages, can be drastically different. And those differences were not really touched on, but given the short amount of time, I think they did quite well showing the reality. The only thing I would have liked is for more emphasis on Haiti's beauty. We saw the National Cathedral in Port au Prince (now in ruins from the 2010 earthquake), Bassin Bleu in Jacmel, and some of the mountains, but Haiti is really such a beautiful land, it is a shame to not show the stunning beauty that is there. And since the video is of the "must-see places", one would think that more recognition would be given, or even mention of the locations which were shown in the video.

Other than that, I think it is not a bad film. A great way to visit much of Haiti is with the Academy of Haitian Language and Culture which does immersion programs into the language and culture, and focuses on showing a lot of Haiti's countryside to visitors from around the world.[...]

I think another more appealing country could have been picked on this one. This is about pure poverty and Voodoo and their beliefs. A must see place would be more like ancient ruins and castles. I was hoping it would be like Western Civilization: Pyramids,
or Eastern Civilizations like the Aztecs and the Mayans. I do not recommend this movie unless you want to look at poverty in our world and people just beating on drums!
