Undiscovered Haiti with Jose Andres
Join world-renowned chef Jose Andres on an exploration of the most unknown - and some say, the most beautiful - island in the Caribbean. While most Americans know Haiti only through its disasters (earthquake, hurricane, poverty, disease), Jose explores the Undiscovered Haiti. As a chef and humanitarian, Jose is convinced we can change the world through the power of food, and understand a culture by exploring what, when and how its people eat. Jose dives deep into Haiti's delicious dishes and its primitive coastlines. He gets his hands dirty hunting for rare mushrooms, searching for sunken treasure and taking part in voodoo ceremonies. We see Jose's goal to bring solar-powered stoves to the island take root and - along the way - meet friends like President Bill Clinton and chef Mario Batali who share Jose's passion for Haiti and its people. In the spirit of both adventure and exploration, Undiscovered Haiti follows Jose into the heart of this mysterious island; through its unique cuisine we discover the history and culture - and see into the future - of a proud and rarely understood people.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
