Director Film Voodoo and the Church in Haiti, 1987
Andrea Echenberg Leland

Her first documentary, Voodoo and the Church in Haiti, celebrates Voodoo as a traditional form of African spirituality and places it within the context of
everyday life in Haiti. It is currently in distribution with the University of California Center of Media and Independent Learning


Following a trip to Haiti in 1986, Leland found filmmaking to be a more effective way to both celebrate a community visually and address the issues of culture in the social and political context. In addition, though the collaboration process, the groups being documented could be given a forum to voice their
untold stories, personal challenges and compelling triumphs.
