Feature Friday: Return to the Trembling Heart

On January 12, 2010, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit Haiti just outside the town of Léogâne, just 16 miles from the capitol city, Port-au-Prince. Buildings were crushed, monuments toppled, and as many as 220,000 people lost their lives.

In the face of this disaster, radical arts collective Atis Rezistans and the children’s offshoot Timoun Rezistans that inhabit the Grand Rue, began to transform what was left of their world.
