We just got word that our documentarian, Roman Safiullin, journeyed to Haiti last week on the 8th of January. Danny Daneau spoke with him via email last Wednesday who told him:
I’m in my last semester at UF and we’re about to start editing the film we’ve shot profiling two young guys who run a non-profit and conduct deworming and medical missions around the world and run a number of orphanages and schools for homeless kids. We’re focusing on their efforts in Haiti. Our third trip there is this Friday. One of them is opening a school in a rural village, should be exciting.
To our relief, The Miami Hearld reported today that Roman, along with his documentary partner John Bougher, are alive and okay. He is hopefully going to be coming home in the next couple days. Our thoughts and prayers remain with Roman and his family as well as all of the tragic victims of the earthquake.
