Cristo Rey  [2013]
DirectorLeticia Tonos
CastAkari Endo, Yasser Michelén, James Saintil
The story of a shantytown of Santo Domingo where the Haitian Janvier and the Dominican Rudy — half-brothers who hate each other — will fight for the love of the same woman.
Set in the Dominican Republic, Leticia Tonos Paniagua’s uniquely Caribbean retelling of Romeo and Juliet chronicles the love between a kind-hearted teenager, ostracized for his mixed Haitian-Dominican descent, and the beautiful sister of a local drug kingpin he’s hired to protect.
[Ron Deibert, Director of the Canada Centre for Global Security Studies and the Citizen Lab at the Munk School of Global Affairs, is an expert on issues related to technology, media, and world politics. He will speak about Cristo Rey in an extended Q&A session following one of the screenings.]
