About Jean Gentil

Year Released:
Based on a true story, Jean Gentil is a well-educated Haitian man who has lived for many years in the Dominican Republic without being able to find steady work. A fervent believer, Jean undertakes a voyage across the country asking God what he wants him to be. Dominican-Mexican directors Laura Amelia Guzmán and Israel Cárdenas expose a country unknown to many, with breathtaking landscapes, rarely seen sites of Santo Domingo, and the quiet humor of the conversations Jean has with those he meets on his way. In Spanish languae with English subtitles. Directors Laura Amelia Guzmán and Israel Cárdenas are scheduled to be present. (35mm presentation)
