Ghosts of Cite Soleil

Billed as a Caribbean epic of family, love and violence, GHOSTS OF CITE SOLEIL takes us inside the lives of notorious gang leaders who dominate the Haitian slum of Cite Soleil. The reality of life today in Haiti unfolds before us as we get to know two brothers and their stories intimately. They are 2Pac and Bily, Haitian gang leaders who strive to make better choices in a world with no choices at all. Through unprecedented access, we see the brothers love and hatred for each other, their love triangle with Lele, a French relief worker, and their unsavory pact with President Aristide during his desperate grasp to maintain power in early 2004. Speaking the language of violence and knowing that staying alive in Haiti is a very day-to-day proposition, 2Pac and Bily struggle to find a better life for themselves and for their people.

  1. Wow very interesting! The thought of this is just impacting not only to the reader but to envision it all.

  2. Wow I can’t even finish watching this. Too disgusted.

    BTW, that university thing where the guy got both his legs broken, and the student shootings, etc?

    Its been shown to be all fake, and an excuse to stage a coup. Its been on US news. This doc is a zero on ten. 0/10

  3. Nice footage, except for the blatant propaganda against Aristide. I mean, come on! “business owner and opposition leader” is obviously against Aristide…and to not even mention Duvalier’s cruel and bloody rule…

    Just saying put things into context – Aristide is the least worst of em all.

  4. fucking niggers, hope they die off

    • Wish death upon another: you bring that wish right down to your own children. You wish death upon “niggers” but you just exhibited that you are the only “nigger” here with that comment. … Clamp you mouth wide open and hire a Haitian to take a shit right down your throat you cave monkey.

  5. This is the saddest doc I’ve ever seen! Even in pure poverty and violence, these people are still able to show love and promote peace for the greater good. I wouldn’t consider these guys gangsters…at least not in the sense of what we know as gangsters today in the U.S. They’re just poor people being manipulated by evil powers, i.e. Aristide, the U.S. government and others in power.
