Le Maryaj Lenglensou - The opera
A film by Hans Fens
Lenglensou, the god of blood, has manifested himself in the long and bloody Haitian history. From the early days of genocide of the indigenous people, till today, Haiti is a country where the blood never ceases to be shed. Corruption, poverty, deceases, exploitation: it’s all on such a major scale that it is hard to conceive. Filmmaker and storyteller Hans Fels has been visiting the country for years and he looks through this negative image. For him, the Haitians are true masters in the art of living. This country has so much unused talent, so many virtuous musicians, so many fantastic painters, that shadowing the ‘battle’ to get the opera going, has delivered a fantastic film.
