Kenbe Fem Documentary Release says
STG Presents Kenbe Fem as a part of the Nights at the Neptune 2015 series.

Kenbe Fem, roughly translated as "to hold firm", is a common phrase in Haitian culture. This documentary was entitled Kenbe Fem to represent the resilience of the Haitian community. Despite all that Haiti has been through over the past two centuries, to "hold firm" was most relevant as many people watched their homes and over 250,000 people perish during the earthquake on January 12, 2010.

Follow David Pierre-Louis, a Haitian-American and Seattle art-venue owner, on a son's journey to find his mother after the devastating earthquake. Immersed in the ruins, he is challenged to fill the gaps lacking fulfillment by the Haitian government & various NGOs.

This movement to heal Haiti, through the empowerment of the Haitian Diaspora, is essential and inspirational. Observe the formation of partnerships between international communities and discover the embodiment of "kenbe fem" in action. Join us on the journey. Engage as we rebuild his mother’s home into Kay Tita, or Tita’s House, a thriving community resource center that anticipates providing applicable tools for the impoverished community in order for them to become the self-sustained nation they are willed to be.

Take a look at the full schedule of events, on June 25th, by visiting
