About the Documentary:
The women known as Madan Sara in Haiti work tirelessly to buy, distribute, and sell food and other essentials in markets through the country. Despite the obstacles faced by the women working in a sector that lacks investment, infrastructure and state assistance, the Madan Sara continue to be one of the most critical parts of the Haitian economy and of who we are as a country.
The Madan Sara documentary tells the stories of these indefatigable women who work at the margins to make Haiti’s economy run. Despite
facing intense hardship and social stigma, the hard 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.
