Inhabitants of Port au Prince talk about their disconcerting city. This chaotic megopolis, also a surrealist city is visited by writers Breton and Malraux. It is a canvas on which the tremendous artistic creativity of its inhabitants dictates its relationship with the world. What will become of Port au Prince and its inhabitants? Ths is a metaphor of third world cites, a vast urban landscape trying to show us the issues related to urbanization. This film was shot during the city’s bicentennial, and is a must-see.
