Library Screening

The Clark County Public Library will host a free screening of Madan Sara and a special appearance by director Etant Dupain, at 11 a.m. on Saturday in the Gaier Meeting Room of the Main Library, 201 S. Fountain Ave.

The documentary tells the stories of indefatigable women who work at the margins to make Haiti’s economy run. Despite facing intense hardship and social stigma, the demanding work of the Madan Sara puts their children through school, houses their families, and helps to ensure a better life for generations to come. This film amplifies the calls of the Madan Sara as they speak directly to society to share their dreams for a more just Haiti.” https://www.madansarafilm.com/
