Haiti, destiny of a Nation (54 mn)

Though still fairly unknown in Europe, Toussaint Louverture was the first great Black leader, prior to Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela.
Born a slave in the French settlement of San Domingo - present-day Haiti - Louverture had an extraordinary career, becoming General of the French army and eventually the Governor of the colony. Opposing Napoleon, wishing to reestablish slavery, he died in 1803.
200 years after Independence, gained at a very high cost, we discover a proud Haitian people referring to French culture and the ideals of the Revolution, though their impoverished country still suffers from Napoleon's betrayal.

In the foosteps of Saint-Thomas

In South India, and particularly in Kerala, the origins of the christian communities date back to the evangelisation by the apostle Thomas, who, according to tradition, landed on the Malabar coast in 52 A.D.
Later, those communities were linked to the Church of the East ( also called the Nestorian church, and later the Chaldean church). Having converted to the roman catholicism , they rebelled; from this time on, they split off into a number of groups: they divided into a roman catholic group and another group linked with the Syrian orthodox Church having Antiocha as the patriarchal headquarters.
