The women known as Madan Sara in Haiti work tirelessly to buy, distribute, and sell food and other essential in markets through the county. Despite the obstacles faced by the women working in a sector that lacks investment, infrastructure and state assistance, the Madan Sara continue to be one of the most critical parts of the Haitian economy and of who we are as a country. The Madan Sara documentary tells the stories of these indefatigable women who work at the margins to make Haiti’s economy run. Despite facing intense hardship and social stigma, the hard work of the Madan Sara puts their children through school, houses their families, and helps to ensure a better life for generations to come. Directed by Etant Dupain. (in French and Haitian Creole w/English subtitles)
