Storyline

A grieving young boy discovers he has a superpower. An old fisherman realizes the cure for his ailing wife can be found in the sea. A muse struggles to exit the story her author is penning. In Guetty Felin's magical neorealist tale, these three stories combine to create a poetic portrait of the island nation Haiti. Set five years after the devastating 2010 earthquake, Felin's film eschews the images that saturated screens after the disaster. While the pain of the destruction remains evident - in young Orphée's grief over the loss of his father, in the rubble of decimated buildings, in ghostly images that float beneath the ocean's surface - Felin refuses to tell a tale of victimhood. Instead, she places the island's narrative back in the hands of Haitians whose lives aren't reducible to headlines. And as her characters begin to heal, Felin suggests that the island will too.

An Artistic Dreamscape of Haiti
26 August 2019 | by tetienne-47567See all my reviews

I attended a screening of AYITI MON AMOUR with my 7 year old daughter and 10 year old son, who have yet to visit our family's ancestral homeland. They enjoyed it and it filled my heart to see both the reality and beauty of Haiti represented in the film. There is an indelible, potent connection between a country and her children and AYITI MON AMOUR is a testament to this. Writer/director Guetty Felin captures the essence of Haiti through her personal interpretation of Italian neorealism to produce a cinematic love letter to our often misunderstood and misrepresented homeland.

The pace of the film is deliberate and unrushed and the audience is rewarded with dreamy imagery that depicts simple vignettes of the characters' lives. A unique film by a talented filmmaker with a voice all her own.
