CineCulture:  Ludi (2021)

Discussant: Edson Jean (Director)

Ludi (2021) by Haitian-American director Edson Jean follows a young Haitian immigrant Ludi Alcidor who works day and night as a nurse at a private nursing home. Her goal is to earn money for her family back in Haiti while struggling to find out what she wants and needs for herself. “America is the land of opportunity”, they say. “You can make it here,” they say. That’s the biggest lie ever told. Black people and immigrants, surviving paycheck-to-paycheck while supporting their families, is what America is truly about. In French, Haitian Creole, Spanish, and English with English subtitles. 85 minutes.  

Sponsors: The French Program and the Department of Modern & Classical Languages & Literatures.
