Serenade for Haiti is a touching documentary that chronicles the story of the students
and teachers at Sainte Trinite Music School in Port-au-Prince Haiti, before and after the
devastating 2010 earthquake. A class screening of the film may supplement a social studies,
global studies, or arts/music curriculum. Taught in conjunction with this guide, Serenade for
Haiti will encourage students to consider art and music as a fundamental building blocks of
society and self, instrumental in the development of full personhood and culture. Discussion
questions and supplementary materials facilitate further research into related topics such as
global poverty, recovery from trauma and Haitian history.
