Lately, I’ve been able to get back to a lot of the images I captured on my last trip to Haiti. We had one of the most beautiful locations to work, as we stayed a stones throw from the beach on the South coast of Haiti near a town called Saint-Georges. Not too shabby, if I do say so myself.

I’ll be posting more images soon!

Welcome to the latest installment of a weekly movie blog series about the best movies you (probably) haven’t seen. Last week, I featured the first black-and-white film of the series, 12 Angry Men, and the week before, I featured the modern version of Great Expectations, which is one of my favorite movies of all-time.

(The idea is that each week I’ll throw out a movie that I think is really great, but isn’t a huge mainstream hit, or it’s not fresh and likely hasn’t been seen in quite a while—if at all. If you have seen it, share what you think about it—and feel free to rip me if you think it’s not worth watching! Then, in the comments, y’all make one movie suggestion as well. It’s that simple, and it’ll be a lot of fun if you’re a cinephile like me.)

This week, my nomination for the best movie you (probably) haven’t seen takes us to the slums of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. The first foreign film nominated for this series, City of God (foreign title is Cidade de Deus)is a gripping foreign film revealing the delicate politics and brutal tragedy of common life for kids growing up in one of Rio’s most crime-ridden favelas. The film’s Portugese trailer is located at the end of the blog post. It is a much truer representation of the style, creativity, and characters in the film.
