On the magic screen, their dreams come true, the impossible becomes very possible and the world they seemed to be stuck or trapped in fades in a kind of fog slowly extracting hope and a sense good things do and can happen.
Obviously, Romane Simon, a young filmmaker connected with this open door to greater creative possibilities in Haiti where each day of his life was met with a storm of political unrest. He was determined to get to the place where he could paint his own screen stories and images he hungered for the world to know about.
Simon finally arrived in Hollywood and quickly settled in an area where many young people find it economical for survival. He quickly made himself known among others who had a similar passion for film which resulted in a new world of cinematic magic. His dream took root and before he knew it, he was yelling “ACTION!” And his filmmaking dance began.
This was only a few years ago and Romane has continually directed short and feature films making the industry feel his artistic power and passion for story-telling.
His latest feature film is “Life of Gia” based on a true story about a girl who loses her family at the age of eight in a car accident. The driver of the car is an out of control drug addict.

The film paints a graphic picture of her desperate determination to create a life of pride and dignity.

Not only that, it is important to consider the life of others before doing something which might result in tragedy. “When you’re very young,” he offered, “it seldom comes to mind certain realities of how your actions can affect the life of someone else. I just hope that my film will at least make people; especially young people become aware of this. Simple as that.”
