2014 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Tatiana will produce Freedom Denied, a featured length documentary that posthumously tells the story of Haitian Jean-Baptiste Edvard Pierre’s near decade-long battle for political asylum in the United States, as told by the attorneys and community activists who fought side-by-side for his freedom. Tatiana hopes this documentary will be a catalyst for a broader conversation about U.S. immigration policies, which would hopefully lead to changes of current laws.
