VIDEO: A Gift to Haiti by Matt LaFontaine

A good friend brought my attention to this impressive little video, and I’m very thankful he did. As children of the digital-creative age, it’s so easy for us to become wrapped up in music videos, high art, fashion and what not. I find it refreshing to be reminded of the wider world. And if a video can achieve that with beautiful cinematography and music, so much the better.

Matt LaFontaine presents us with a succinct chronicle of what no doubt was a large and impressive undertaking. Nine people travelled from their homes in Canada solely to provide the little bit of aid they could to the impoverished and earthquake stricken nation of Haiti. One would expect a sombre, in your face struggle. But, instead, we’re presented with a joyful documentation, a message of hope, companionship and humanity.
