About «Boy With a Coin »
Charlie Chapo is the Haitian nickname of an American traveler who’s tried to adopt Haitian culture as his own. At dawn on January 12, 2010, he walks into the hills above Port-au-Prince as an earthquake lays waste to the city below. A pilgrimage of sorts, his journey that day takes him into, through and out of himself, toward another identity. Out of the shattered world fallen around him comes a kind of reconstructed self.
