Ouvertures, dir. Louis Henderson, Olivier Marboeuf with The Living and The Dead Ensemble, France-Haiti-UK 2019, 140 min. English subtitles

The Living and the Dead Ensemble, an artist collective from Haiti, France and the UK, bring an embodied and contemporary perspective to the history of the only uprising of enslaved peoples that led to the creation of a state. Shot in Haiti and France, through complex conversations and performances, Ouvertures considers ideas around language and translation as well as major themes of colonialism, power, cultural memory, generational trauma, knowledge and resistance.
