At Sainte Trinité Music School in Port-au-Prince, children use classical music to channel their creativity and nurture their sense of empowerment. School director Father David César has extended music education throughout the island, and, even after unimaginable disaster strikes, César, his faculty and students refuse to let Sainte Trinité’s legacy come to an end.
Filmmaker Owsley Brown began documenting the school long before Haiti’s devastating 2010 earthquake and he continued to follow its fate over several years of rebuilding. Serenade for Haiti captures the resilience and talent of this widely misunderstood country, and the soundtrack highlights outstanding Haitian composers who are largely unknown to international audiences.
