This feature-length documentary highlights the magical Haitian people who rose from the darkness of slavery to create the first Black Republic. Ayiti Toma, translated to mean “the country that is ours,” is a place that lies beyond the natural disasters and human aid debacles that mark Haiti. This aspired homeland is depicted through the Haitian population, including politicians, intellectuals, voodoo practitioners and youth from the hard-hit neighbourhoods of Port-au-Prince. Anthropologists, historians and aid workers (like Sean Penn) also lend their testimony, demonstrating that the key to making Ayiti Toma a reality lies in the vibrant culture of the Haitian people.
