Diane Wolkstein, who has supported my video series since its launch in 2009, returns with a poignant story from her collection The Magic Orange Tree and Other Haitian Folktales. The most amazing thing about this story is the fourth - and intentionally forgotten - daughter's capacity to forgive her mother for the injustice done to her as a child. "Cric?"

This performance was recorded at the Mother's Day Benefit for Haiti (Scandinavia House, New York City, Sunday 9 May 2010) using an older miniDV tape camcorder. It has been upscaled to 720p HD.

Remastered using Phyx Rezorect 13 March 2012
