Save with a LIFF 2022 Pass

A production from the African diaspora, Gessica Geneus’ Creole-language debut feature is a celebration of female resilience underpinned by a vivid evocation of life in Haiti. Freda is a determined young university student, living with her family in a poor neighbourhood of Port-au-Prince, where they run a small street shop. Faced with precarious living conditions, colonial legacies and the rise of violence, she must decide whether to stay in her deeply troubled country or seek a future elsewhere. Freda wants to believe in the future of her country.

Part of Women Creators of the Future - a programme at LIFF 2022 presented in partnership with the Films Femmes Afrique Festival in Senegal, with support from British Council.
