From Haiti… Screen test

We had so much kit on the plane , we couldn’t carry a frame for the screen, and had to trust in our luck that we’d be able to improvise out here…
Luckily for us Eric, the Sinema Anba Zetw (Cinema under the Stars) tech guy got on the case , designing a simple lightweight rig for us that consists of two 14 ft poles which pin into the ground and can collapse down for transport. His big concern from many years projecting outside in Haiti is that really strong winds can come up in the space of ten minutes and rip a screen away… potentially very dangerous …Eric’s design means that if winds do blow up we can pull the screen off to one side – like a shower curtain…Eric’s friend Pellej took the design off and in the afternoon cut and welded the parts

This evening we tried it out in Laurence’s garden. Not enough room to tension the screen properly… but its looking good. merci eric et pellej!
