Synopsis

Haiti Untold chronicles the personal journey of a few famous and not-so-famous individuals who have put their heads and hearts to the task of effecting radical change in Haiti, following the devastating earthquake of 2010.

The film also provides an unusual counter point-of-view on what is really happening in the country, looking beyond the ethos of fast-food journalism, which seems at times to feed exclusively on tragedies to scandals while skipping over the stories of hope and re-building. Many of us who were moved to give generously in response to the quake, when listening to the media, now wonder if all the donations made any difference at all. Is there hope in this land of devastation?

Actor Sean Penn, NHL Player Georges Laraque, as well as designers Donna Karan (DKNY) and Joey Adler (Diesel Canada), Dennis O’Brian (Digicel Founder & CEO), Bill Evans, the President of the famous Golf Club that housed the largest IDP camp Haitian, and Dave Toycen, President & CEO of World Vision Canada have all dedicated their lives to responding to the cry of the nation of Haiti following the quake. Their stories lead us to discover the people they have touched and the impact they are having in shaping the future history of a country many have given up for lost.
