Cotton Candy

Directed By Fredgy Noël

The short explores the one island, two nation relationship between Haiti and the Dominican Republican through the story of two families selling Cotton Candy on the beach.

Production Details & Description

Marie is a young entrepreneur whose main goal is to earn enough money to contribute to her aunt’s funeral in Haiti. David is a hopeless romantic––infatuated by music and women. He sells cotton candy in order to send money back to his brother who lives in the Dominican Republic. As Marie and David compete for a profitable Orchard Beach cotton candy route, age-old conflicts arise between the two families and the two young vendors learn that their differences may be what unites them.
