Zo Reken
Zo reken ("shark bone") is the nickname given in Haiti to the Toyota Land Cruiser, a powerful 4x4 vehicle popular among the humanitarian aid organizations that are omnipresent in the country since the 2010 earthquake. Ten years later, as the country is once more in turmoil and under a strict lockdown, a zo reken has been hacked and transformed into a mobile space for encounters and discussion among Haitians, all citizens of Port-au-Prince. They talk about the state of the country, about neocolonialism, and condemn the unfulfilled promises of the international community. Anger is mounting.
