Georges Corvington: Port-au-Prince, my Unique and Only love is a documentary about Haitian Historian Georges Corvington, best known for his seven-volume work on the history of Haiti’s capital city, Port-au-Prince, entitled Port-au-Prince Over the Years, which was published from 1970 to 1992. Corvington’s one passion: Port-au-Prince. He patiently tried to decode the city’s DNA and to recreate its urban genome. Buried under the rubble for hours after the January 12, 2010 earthquake, Georges Corvington came out alive, but he never recovered from the loss of his personal library, which contained irreplaceable documents about Port-au-Prince.

Known for his social, political, and cultural commitment, Haitian filmmaker Arnold Antonin created some of the best films about Haitian art, culture and history.  He received the Djibril Diop Mambety award at the Cannes International Film Festival in 2002, and several others, including the Paul Robeson best film award at the African Diaspora FESPACO in Ouagadougou in 2007, 2009, and 2011.  His films are available for purchase at www.ArnoldAntoninFilms.com
