GRACE & MERCY
Austin Premiere and Fundraiser Screening of GRACE & MERCY. All proceeds to benefit the nonprofit, WE HEAR YOUR VOICE.
Shot over the course of the year following the devastating 2010 Haiti earthquake, GRACE & MERCY interweaves the tireless work of Marie Jose Poux, who runs an orphanage and school responsible for over 100 children, and her brother, Ben Constant, who is the "Mayor" of one of the largest tent cities in Port-au-Prince. The film aims to show how two dedicated people can rebuild a community and a country-- one day, one child and one person at a time.
Combining unprecedented access with cinema-vérité footage, director Luis Peña paints a beautiful portrait of a brother and sister team who are proof that Haiti will survive — no matter what — and will one day thrive again. To learn more about this film visit www.graceandmercymovie.com
