One day, everything will be free is a feature-length documentary about permaculture, international aid, and Sadhana Forest Haiti––an unlikely reforestation community organized around an alternative economy in an area of Haiti devastated by erosion and environmental degradation.
This video explores the challenges, motivations, and broader implications of an ecological restoration project run by a utopian community located in one of the most contested and politically complicated terrains in the world––in an area referred to locally as “the wasteland.”
