PDN Video Pick: Hey You! A Project for Haiti

After the January 12, 2010 earthquake in Haiti, seven young artists, including photographers Kareem Black, Alessandro Simmonetti and Wyatt Gallery, formed an art collective they called Le Set (Creole for “seven”) and volunteered with healinghaiti.org. They have continued to use their work to raise money for the healinghaiti.org and to inspire others to help. They call their initiative “Hey You: A Project for Haiti” because “hey you” is what they heard from children wherever they went in Haiti.

Filmmaker Eugene Fuller, a member of Le Set, has created a film about the collective’s trip to Haiti. Here’s a trailer,. The full video was shown at a fundraiser held at the Mother agency in New York last week. You can see it, and learn more about Hey You Haiti, on the project’s web site.
