My Life as a Girl, so Far

My Life as a Girl, So Far tells the story a young rest-avek girl and her freedom from servitude through creativity, art and friendship. It is imagined as theatrical production in three acts — awakening, liberation and freedom – and uses artwork to depict scenes from the rest-avek girl’s life: her life in the home in which she serves and her life in the city where she passes almost invisibly except for a group of children (and one girl especially) who see her — and are planning and making something…

The little pictures featured in the story were created by five children from around the Fanal Otantik Sant D’A Jakmel (FOSAJ)  neighbourhood of Haiti.
