Port-au-Prince is a heartwarming film about the friendship between two people from different worlds: a septuagenarian from Santa Catarina of German origin and a Haitian immigrant who has just arrived in Santa Catarina, a city mostly made of white european immigrants descendants. It is a simple, sincere drama that thoughtfully explores complex themes such as immigration, prejudice, and xenophobia.
Bertha is a widow who lives alone on an isolated farm in the mountains of Santa Catarina. Beginning to face difficulties in keeping the property running, her son is pressuring her to live with him in an upscale neighborhood of Florianópolis. Upon learning about the arrival of a group of Haitians in Santa Catarina, Bertha decides to bring the Haitian Bastide to work and live with her, fueling her son’s hostility. Living together transforms the working relationship between Bertha and Bastide into a sincere friendship between two people from different cultures who share common ideas and feelings.
