The story of Haiti's turbulent past, the obstacles of the present and it's uncertain future.

Nou Bouke, a Creole slogan that is painted on many ruinous walls throughout Port-au-Prince, loosely translates to "We're Tired" and indeed Haitian history is tainted with daunting chapters of failed political plans and hollow promises of development. This feature-length documentary, NOU BOUKE: HAITI'S PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE airing Thursday, January 13 at 7 p.m. on WXXI World (cable 524/DT21.2), will focus on Haiti's past, present and future in light of the apocalyptic January 12th earthquake that now marks a new chapter in the nation's history. As the Caribbean nation faces perhaps its most challenging crossroads due to the immense loss of life and property resulting from the earthquake, Nou Bouke presents a comprehensive look at the Haitian polemic. It is a representative mosaic that depicts the many perspectives that surround the hopes and aspirations of the Haitian people as they move forward into a future full of uncertainty.
