Bound by Haiti
Jon Bougher and Roman Safiullin
Bound by Haiti is the story of Aaron Jackson and John Dieubon – two young international activists forced to deal with the tragedy of the Haiti earthquake first-hand. Raised on a resort in Florida, Aaron has dedicated his life to eradicating intestinal parasites in Haiti. Born and orphaned in Port-au-Prince, John’s mission is to inspire a new, self-sufficient generation of Haitian children.
But when the earthquake of January 12th strikes, Aaron and John must confront the biggest challenge of their lives. The filmmakers, staying outside Port-au-Prince, captured the tragedy immediately after this devastating event. Featuring rare video and photos from immediately following the earthquake, Bound by Haiti follows these unlikely friends on a journey for change before and after one of the most catastrophic international events of our time.
