On Friday April 5th at 7 p.m. we celebrate a special Sadhana Forest Haiti Night and are delighted to screen the freshly made film One day, everything will be free.
2013, A Film by Joseph Redwood-Martinez, English
“One day, everything will be free” is a feature-length documentary about an ecological restoration project run by a utopian community located in one of the most politically complicated and environmentally degraded terrains in the world––in an area referred to locally as “the wasteland.” The film explores the challenges, motivations, and broader implications of Sadhana Forest Haiti, an unlikely reforestation community organized around an alternative economy in an area of Haiti devastated by soil erosion and social immobility.
The director lived and worked with the Sadhana Forest community in Anse-a-Pitre, Haiti, from May to August of 2012. Motivated by the desire to discover Sadhana Forest, he was able to appreciate the impact on the society of Sadhana Forest, a community that encourages its participants to realize abundance by provoking actions motivated by resilience and patience over instant gratification.
After the movie, the Director will be present to answer questions from the audience.
There will also be a small presentation on the work being done by Sadhana Forest Haiti.
