Catégorie : Journalisme, Production

Interrupt This Program uncovers the underground arts scenes in cities that have experienced major traumas: natural disasters, long-term war, political unrest or economic meltdown. In each episode, we meet three or four young, determined local artists (plus one Canadian ex-pat to offer an outsider’s perspective) who are committed to making art that elicits change, displays courage or protests their city’s political and societal status quo.

Season 1, episode 03 – Port-Au-Prince: Art As Rebirth (48 minutes)

In Port-au-Prince a radio host, a photographer, a Rabòday singer, and a creole rapper showcase the emerging and subversive sounds and images of Haiti in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake.
