Dark Water: Miryam Charles Films and Convo

This House (Cette Maison)
Dir: Miryam Charles

Haitian-Canadian filmmaker Miryam Charles’s debut feature is haunting and tender meditation on migration, grief, and memory—dedicated to
the director’s 14-year-old cousin Tessa. With a loving touch and luminous 16mm film, Charles offers vibrant images of Haiti and displacements in North America in a dream-
like elegy.

Preceded by

Towards the Colonies
(Vers les colonie)
Dir: Miryam Charles

This elliptical experimental short is gently shaped around an absence: the body of a young girl found off the Venezuelan coast. The logbook of a medical examiner intercuts mesmerizing shots of the sea in this hauntingly fluid film.

Fly, Fly Sadness
(Vole, vole tristesse)
Dir: Miryam Charles

Set in Port-au-Prince after a mysterious explosion leaves the population voiceless, this short summons the ruptures of the Haitian Revolution.
