We in the United States are used to seeing Haiti represented only in terms of its problems. But filmmaker Alex Horner points out that it isn't really a fair—or accurate—picture of what life in Haiti is like.

"It's important to recognize that the images typically shown of Haiti," Horner writes in the introduction to his film, "do not necessarily represent the country as a whole."

Prepare yourself for a rare glimpse into a different side of this country, a place of startling scenery, joyful communities, and everyday immersion in nature.
