Join us on November 3rd from 5-7pm at the Concordia Ethnography Lab (EV 10.625) for the screening of Kite Zo A (Leave the Bones) by Kaveh Nabatian (+ Q&A with the director) 
In 1791, in Haiti, Dutty Boukman presided over a Vodou ritual in Bois-Caïman that led to the creation of the first Black republic. Since then, rituals of transformation and artistic expression have been at the core of a thriving culture as the country faces oppression, poverty, and natural disasters. Kite Zo A “Leave the Bones” is a sensorial film about rituals in Haiti made in collaboration with poets, dancers, musicians, fishermen, daredevil rollerbladers, and Vodou priests. Set to poetry by Haitian author Wood-Jerry Gabriel. It had its international premiere at SXSW. Canada/Haiti • 2022 • 70min• Haitian creole • English subtitles

As a composer and trumpet player, he’s toured the world and released several critically-acclaimed albums with his Juno award-winning band Bell Orchestre. Kaveh aspires to make films that have the immediacy of music, and to make music that has the evocative energy of film.
