Capturing a rare look at a country scored by poverty and political strife, Serenade for Haiti recounts the resilience of the Sainte Trinité Music School community. When a catastrophic earthquake destroys the school in 2010, traumatized faculty members and students unite to find solace through the power of classical music. Footage of the children immersed in the rich musical heritage they have inherited chronicles how the community adapts, rebuilds, and remains hopeful about the future. Debuting the work of Haiti’s notable composers, the documentary ventures deep into the streets of Port-au-Prince to provide insight into a widely misunderstood country. Discussion with director Owsley Brown and Diane Hoffman (UVA), moderated by Marlene Daut (UVA)
