“DEBATES ON CUBA” presents:
“Yo No Soy Píchon”.Cubans of Haitian descent: Screening & Debates on Cultural Identity.
Presented by: Esery Mondesir (Director of the film)
“Yo No Soy Píchon” (working title) is a documentary narrative by the Toronto-based emerging filmmaker Esery Mondesir. The film explores the concepts of cultural identity, nationality and citizenship by following a group of Cubans of Haitian descent as they prepare for a vodou ceremony.“Sylvia Galdez, her son Dieuseul and her siblings left their native town of Santiago de Cuba eleven years ago to settle in a slum-like neighbourhood outside of Havana in search for a better life”.
“This is obviously a story close to my heart” says Esery Mondesir, the Haitian born director, “ but I also believe that a lot of us who have experienced migration and exile can relate to it as well” the Toronto-based filmmaker.
