This is another official selection of the 2011 Heartlant Film Festival (Oct 14-22). The Country Club, directed by Jace Freeman and produced by The Moving Picture Boys, "follows one 12-year old boy struggling to find hope despite heavy rains, instability, and a future unknown."

Full Synopsis:

Once a prestigious country club overlooking Port-au-Prince and the Caribbean Sea, the only golf course in Haiti has become an impromptu home to tens of thousands living beneath tarps due to a devastating earthquake. Out of the estimated half-million left homeless, this short documentary follows one 12-year old boy struggling to find hope despite heavy rains, instability, and a future unknown.

Here's the trailer.

    I hope to get the cahnce to see this. It's so easy to forget what Haiti is going through; films like this one remind us that there is still work to do there.
