English

Louverture Films is a New York limited liability company dedicated to the development and production of films of historical relevance, social purpose, commercial value and artistic integrity. Taking its name and inspiration from the great leader of the Haitian Revolution, Toussaint Louverture – famous for always creating an « opening » in the face of enormous obstacles – Louverture Films pro-actively supports the employment and training of cast and crew from the African Diaspora, minorities and marginalized communities.
