Generation: Diaspora
Film by Dominique Remy


As the quintessential “good daughter” and avid reader, a first generation American teenager, Collette Benoit, follows the tenets of her traditional Haitian household. Those rules are to solely go to school, church, and home. That changes one day when, Collette’s free-spirited best friend Ivy Sanchez convinces Collette to accompany her on a double date with the high school heartthrobs, Alan Chen and Fernando Rodriguez.
In an attempt to seem more mature, Ivy provides Collette with contraband otherwise known as makeup to wear on the date. Despite wanting to test her rebellious nature, Collette defies expectations of her family and social life in search of a more meaningful encounter.
