We want to laugh, dream and be inspired by positive messages. The short films will encourage them to be strong and move forward.

The movies will be shown nightly on a 15m (49.2ft) inflatable screen in shelters located throughout Port au Prince and surrounding areas and will include both short and feature length, Hollywood movies. The short films theming on survival, unity and civic participation include: "I'm Still Alive", "Grand Mère", "Mechanistic" and "Volunteer", as well as, shorts recorded by survivors of the earthquake. The full feature movies include: "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea”, "Ice Age”, “Ice Age: The Meltdown" and “Night at the Museum" - the last three are being supplied by 20th Century Fox.
