Episode 104 – “The Missing Peace” with Rachel Benjamin

After a chance meeting with best selling author Edwidge Danticat, filmmaker Rachel Benjamin based her thesis film, “The Missing Peace,”  on Danticat’s short story. The film was set in Haiti and with a micro budget, Rachel could not afford flying to Haiti to shoot. In this episode, Rachel takes us through the making of the film, including finding the perfect “Haiti” setting near Chicago, and being derided on her own set. “The Missing Peace” is available on Vimeo.
