GFF Hosts Special Sinema anba Zetwal (SAZ) Screening for Clinton Global Initiative Members in Haiti
The Green Family Foundation (GFF) and FastForward Haiti (FF) held a Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) members-only screening of the Sinema Anba Zetwal (SAZ) program that has been touring Haiti in the past few months. Seen to the left are FF staff members putting finishing touches on the signage at the event entrance.
The special, one-night-only event featured selections of content from the Food for Souls Tour, including the films and music recorded by ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax in Haiti in the 1930s, as well as educational and culturally relevant programming specific to Haiti and the current condition of its residents.
The repatriation of Lomax's recordings, and GFF's role in disseminating Haiti's cultural history to the world and Haiti itself, has been lauded by the CGI. This was the first opportunity most CGI members had to see the SAZ shows in person.
