Film students cover crisis in Haiti  |  JANUARY 17, 2010

The epicenter of Tuesday's earthquake was located between Port-au-Prince
and the city of Jacmel, 25 miles away on Haiti's southern coast. Film students at the Ciné Institute in Jacmel are now filing reports and posting them to the web.

The Ciné Institute uses the power of cinema to educate Haitian youth as a means to improve their lives:

 xxllll"Film, and the training required to make films, can offer Haitians access to xxlllllxthe 21st century... Filmmaking breaks isolation, expands horizons, creates xxlllllxnew skills and provides a voice to the previously unheard."

One can only hope their fine work will continue.
