4000 HAITIANS IN TIJUANA ft. Rainn Wilson and Jimmy Jean-Louis
4000 Haitians in Tijuana:
a 15 minute documentary for
Soul Pancake/Participant Media.
The Office funnyman Rainn Wilson and Haitian Hero Jimmy-Jean Louis head to the US/Mexican border to explore the little-known Haitian refugee crisis in Tijuana. The project was conceptualized with actor Rainn Wilson and produced
in support of Ai Wei Wei’s feature doc HUMAN FLOW (2017).
The challenge was to present a serious, complex story, in three languages (Haitian Creole, Spanish and English) and in a style that is consistent with Soul Pancake’s previous, humorous outreach.
Or as we called it, 'Nice Vice'.
