Extending the reach of its film program, the Cube Cinema and its children’s wing, Nanoplex, have set up a mobile, social cinema for children affected by the Haiti earthquakes – The HAITI KIDS KINO PROJECT (HKKP).
In 2010, less than a month after the earthquake, two Cube volunteers went to Port Au Prince and projected films on buildings and tents, while giving camera’s to children to film and explore their own lives.
Sharing the experience of making and watching films, while offering temporary childcare facilities, HKKP is a micro-humanitarian, goodwill project providing an opening for escape, community, emotion and social occasion.
HKKP is funded through putting on children’s workshops in the UK, gigs, art, cake and T shirt sales.
Over October and November 2011, three Cubesters are back in Haiti, continuing the project.
