En quête de racines

There still exist on the planet lands that have preserved their unique identity and avoided standardisation. This is a journey to meet those who live between two worlds, at the heart of an incredible diversity of artistic, linguistic, cultural and environmental traditions.


Haïti, l'île aux masques
Haiti, island of masks

A piece of an island that natural catastrophes and political crises ceaselessly try to destroy: Haiti. Islanders despite themselves, the Haitians attempt to ward off fate through art and creation. Each year, the people of Jacmel bring the streets vibrantly to life with incredible imaginary creatures made in papier mâché.
