IntranQuîllités is a film portraying the polyphony and energy of the contemporary Haitian art scene through the voices of various writers, painters and sculptors. The film’s narrative was developed in close collaboration with a group of Haitian creatives, who are united by a desire to reframe perceptions of the country beyond common representations of victimhood. It presents a more nuanced, complex and local perspective than is often heard in mainstream media.

Lyrically narrated by award-winning Haitian poet James Noël, 'IntranQu’îllités' (20 mins) interweaves the work of several Haitian artists who want to redefine how their nation is perceived. From a tree-based sculpture responding to the earthquake of 2010, to a video artist’s interpretation of a vodou waterfall festival, the film explores the role of art in society and the timeless importance of creativity.
