‘Kazal’ is a photographic project that acknowledges the troubled history of François Duvalier’s dictatorship in Haiti by telling the tragedy of Kazal, a village north of Port-au-Prince. Military and militia crushed an uprising of peasants angered by the regime’s abusive taxes in spring 1969, forbidding them from taking water from the river that flowed through their rural commune. The massacre perpetrated there was later erased from official memory. Over the course of three years, six Haitian photographers from the post-Duvalier generation created a dialogue with the inhabitants of Kazal to interrogate their memories of places and events, mapping a long, complex personal journey.
