Hispaniola

This feature documentary explores the day-to-day lives of people affected by a 2013 Dominican Republic Supreme Court ruling that stripped citizenship from Dominicans of Haitian descent. The film interweaves their stories with realist-inspired accounts of the 1937 Parsley Massacre, in which the Dominican military executed Haitian families and Dominicans of Haitian descent along the border.
