The LP – Miriam Neptune – Screening Documentary

The Birthright Crisis

A documentary film addressing the experiences of Haitians in the Dominican Republic.

About the Project


Miriam’s 2006 video, The Birthright Crisis, relates not only to violence against Haitians in the Dominican Republic but to the larger climate of xenophobia, anti-immigration policies, and historical amnesia plaguing our planet. When Miriam directed the video, which was commissioned by the organization Haitian Women for Haitian Refugees, she wanted to start a conversation among as many people as possible. With the support of The Laundromat Project she was able to take the documentary to places people already gather: coin-ops.
