Victor Toi & Ebby Angel Louis - A tale of two teachers

© Daniel Pook / Short Talks 2017
Vincent Toi came to Haiti as a teacher without the intention of shooting a short film there. This changed when he learned about the origin of the republic and saw similarities to his own Mauritian roots.

For The Crying Conch Vincent collaborated with the locals of Haiti, among them his film school colleague Ebby Angel Louis. The writer/director made his acting debut as a revolutionary leader in the 2017 Berlinale Shorts competitor depicted in our interview.
