About this submission
This is a rough teaser for my feature length documentary about Haitian master painter Ulrick Jean-Pierre, who channels his ancestors and pours his soul onto the canvas with exacting detail and visceral impact. His forty year career has elevated him to be one of the most important, prolific and culturally significant Haitian artists.
We are in early post and I'm looking to see what's working and what's not. As I'm so close to the material and of Haitian descent, I'm wondering if the significance of his work is coming through and how he's coming across as a protagonist. Curious to know what areas/visuals/themes are coming through, are of interest and what is pulling people away from the story.
