Prefete Duffaut is one of the most prolific and famous painters of the so-called "Primitive" or "Naive" painting tradition in Haiti. This mini doc (4.5 minutes) was produced to accompany the ground-breaking exhibit of Haitian Art at the Brooklyn Museum in 1978. Along with a dozen other mini docs about artists the videos were part of a video jukebox in the galleries with the art -- a radical idea at the time. Several of these videos along with two other longer video docs -- an Introduction to Haitian Art and a feature about Ra-Ra, an Easter festival in Haiti -- are available on my archival website: gailpellettproductions.com
