After a massive earthquake devastated Haiti earlier this year, a surge of necessary food and medical aid came pouring into the country. But in the months following, actresses Olivia Wilde and Maria Bello thought Haitian residents needed something more: a movie theater.

“The thing that’s needed most in Haiti right now, besides the immediate relief efforts, is joy. And that’s what this movie is about,” Bello told Reuters.

Since it’s launch in September, the Sun City Picture House, which is sponsored by Artists for Peace and Justice, has served as a theater, community center, and school for the residents.

Bello recounts the grand opening of the picture house, saying, “We had 200 kids that night with little bags of popcorn and juice. Their parents stood in the back, watching them have some joy for the first time.”

To share their experience with the world, the duo have created a short documentary that they plan to screen at film festivals next year. Check out the trailer below, and stop by SunCityPictureHouse.com to learn more.
