A veritable plea for a green Haiti, “Where Have Our Trees Gone??- 300 Years of Tree Cutting in Haiti” is an awareness-raising documentary film that raises an alarm on the challenges of deforestation. It was produced in order to transform the ideas of the population on the stakes of the degradation of the environment. This film wants to change the way society looks to mobilize actors to get involved in reforestation efforts. The images relate the complexity of the woodcutting phenomenon related to the production of coal and the consumption of bakeries, laundries and some factories. It also offers elements of understanding on the impact of the timber trade during the colonial period, the American occupation and the Duvalier dictatorship with interviews and unpublished archives.
