More about the film:
The women known as Madan Sara in Haiti work tirelessly to buy, distribute, and sell food and other essentials in markets through the country. Despite the obstacles faced by the women working in a sector that lacks investment, infrastructure and state assistance, the Madan Sara continue to be one of the most critical parts of the Haitian economy and of who we are as a country. The Madan Sara documentary tells the stories of these indefatigable women who work at the margins to make Haiti’s economy run.
Post-Film Talk | 8 PM:
Madan Sara director Etant Dupain will be in conversation with and answer questions from the audience. The discussion will be moderated by Judy Lewis, Professor of Public Health Sciences at UCONN Health.
