In 2011 artist Pascal Giacomini participated in the 2nd Ghetto Biennale, an international art festival based in a Haitian slum. While there, he started documenting the feverish artistic activity in this unlikely place. In the process, his project expanded to include an exploration into Haiti’s rich culture, its post-earthquake art scene, and love affair with Vodou. The insights gained proved powerful enough to inspire a feature-length documentary (running time, 60 minutes).

Haiti has been called a nation where art is life. People want to know why, and how this is possible in such a poverty-stricken place. Giacomini’s film, Out of Chaos, An Artist’s Journey in Haiti, goes on a mission to illuminate.



“Take a look at the film trailer for multi-media artist Pascal Giacomini’s «Out of Chaos, An Artist’s Journey in Haiti,” and you are likely to fall under the spell of the French-American sculptor, photographer and filmmaker’s ability to capture the color, rhythms and sounds of Haiti’s street life, where artistic activity abounds.”
