Video review: Haiti

Haiti. Filmed in Rosey-O-Vision.

An interesting film not only because it's pre-2010 earthquake but pre-many things since this film is from 1942. Gives a quick history lesson, and a tourist's view of the nation. Has subtle racism as one person noted "... the narrator seems to be amazed that the 'negroes' can govern themselves, and seems thoroughly baffled by their culture."

Introduction to Haiti (1942. Calls in the Carribean travelogue series)

Say! don't you know that the people of Haiti are "blessed with Liberty*"?
