Cahos

by Hervé Roesch, France 2015

Cahos is an immersive film which brings us into an isolated mountain chain in Haïti. Its inhabitants survive on their crops but face the serious problem of deforestation. Elord and his community are hostages in their own montains. To escape famine they strive to relaunch coffee production but the future remains as sombre as smoke rising from the mountains. Elord, a humble farmer guides us through Cahos, a once lush forest. The film presents the joys and the sorrows of Elord, he tells us with unexpected cheerfulness his own difficulties and contradictions as well as those of a whole country.
