Haiti Redux is a study of how social entrepreneurs, NGOs, governments and community leaders are collaborating to help restore and construct sustainable communities primed for growth and prosperity. The film, a collaboration between Fountainhead Transmedia and New York University's Schack Institute of Real Estate explores the process of reconstructing schools, orphanages, housing, and infrastructure developments in Haiti.
Q&A with the Director
Immediately following the film, join Director/Producer Fredric King for a question and answer session about Haiti Redux. Learn how from the debris of Haiti’s devastating earthquake, organizations and individuals were able to unearth innovative ways to rebuild a more stable and sustainable society.
Director Fredric King is a New Orleans native, but he’s lived in New York for the past 30 years.
King has been traveling between Haiti and the U.S. for the past two and a half years, he said. His long-term investment in the region began a few months after the devastating earthquake, in September of 2010. King began his journey in the Central Plateau and traveled to the Slums of Delmas 32, down to the rural village of Bigones.
Haiti Redux was produced through a collaboration between The NYU Schack Institute of Real Estate and Fountainhead Transmediawas. The NYU Schack Institute was founded in 1967, at the initiative of prominent real estate leaders who encouraged NYU to establish an academic center that provided an educational foundation for professionals within their industry.
