Transcript of More Than One Branch prezi

Character 1
Character 2
America's Single Story
“Many stories matter. Stories have been used to dispossess, but stories can also be used to empower and to humanize. Stories can break the dignity of people, but stories can also repair that broken dignity.”
- Chimamanda Adichie
The Logistics & Feasibility
A Tree is More Than One Branch
Christen Parker
Haitian family & environment
How is Haiti different from the single story I was exposed to, prior to my trip?
The video about an American in another county
The news report
The Sympathy video

- She has been to Haiti numerous times.
- She has dear friends already in Haiti.
What makes Christen different:
Documentary will explore
- Daily routines the family does
- Special events occurring that week
- Kids attending school,
(if semester is still going on).
Hypothetical Conclusion:
- Final experience with Christen and family
- Saying goodbye to dear friends, rather than saying goodbye to out of country experience

Background History
Asking Haitians:
How would you want to be portrayed?

In the video, Chimamanda talks about the disaster in a single story, or the single-sided perception of a community that is over told by the media in outside communities.
This title is a metaphor to this "single story phenomenon." A tree has many branches, and a community has many stories. My goal for this documentary is to show the outside communities something different about Haitians and their country.
Sidenote: Why this title?
Intended Audience:
General American public.
