THE WOMEN KNOWN AS MADAN SARA IN HAITI ARE ON THE FOREFRONT OF THE BATTLE FOR A MORE ROBUST, INCLUSIVE ECONOMY.
If Haiti has continued to resist and exist, it is in large part because of the persistence, discipline, and vision of valiant Haitian women.
Haitian filmmaker Etant Dupain has profiled a particular group of women whose work is at the heart of Haiti’s informal economy. Who are they? They are known as the Madan Sara - the namesake of the film. The upcoming film tells the story of the Madan Sara’s tireless work, day in and day out, as they ensure that food in Haiti makes its way to market. Despite facing intense hardship and social stigma, Madan Sara manage to put their children through school, provide housing for their families, and ensure a better life for generations to come.
