Continuing pre-festival coverage of the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival which doesn't get underway until April... here's another title of note.

Called Stones In The Sun (or Woch Nan Soley), the USA/Haiti production, making its world premiere at the festival in the World Narrative section, is written and directed by Patricia Benoit, and its synopsis reads:

In the 1980s, in the midst of increasing political violence, a young couple, two sisters, and a father and son are driven from Haiti to New York, where they must confront the truths of their interlocked pasts. In her impassioned, penetrating feature film debut, Haitian director P. Benoit steers clear of clichés about immigrants and refugees, authentically tapping into the reality of the unique Haitian-American experience.

The film's cast includes Edwidge Danticat (yes, that Edwidge Danticat, the author, although she has appeared in other films and served on film festival juries), Michele Marcelin, Carlo Mitton, James Noel, Patricia Rhinvil, and Thierry SaintineI.

I couldn't dig up much media on the film to share here, except the above still image. It does have a relatively new Facebook page which you can *like* HERE.

I'll certainly be seeing at the Tribeca next month.
