Mark Mamalakis, 2014. CD-ROM. CD-ROM. VG (works, too!). DVD in black jewel case. Black insert with color image and white lettering. Actual disc unmarked. The art of Haiti is continuing to evolve in a variety of new and exciting directions. This video takes a look at the work produced by such talented artists as Hector Hyppolite and Riguad Benoit. Viewers will learn how the personal lifestyles and beliefs of the artists directly affect their work. Hyppolite was a voodoo priest who brought a deep, intuitive feel to many of his creations. Men such as Benoit and Philome Obin were among the early group of Haitian artists who came to their work without formal training from many different walks of life. Their tendency to feature subjects common to everyday life helped increase their popularity among lay people and art critics. (Elizabeth Smith, Rovi Video Production Service); An award winning documentary film about the absorbing art movement that has emerged from the rage, poverty and passion of Haiti. The film juxtaposes images from everyday life with the radiant works of twelve painters and includes interviews with renowned artists Philome Obin and Rigaud Benoit. THE ART OF HAITI delves into the roots of Haitian art in the everyday life, history and culture. The uneasy co-existence of Christian and Vodoun beliefs are explored through detailed retrospectives of artists influenced by the Vodoun religion such as Hector Hyppolite and Andre Pierre. The documentary also serves as a permanent record of the beautiful murals of the Catherale Sainte Trinite in Port-au-Prince, filmed years before the church was destroyed during the earthquake of 2010.
