Si Bonde Vie Yuli / God Willing Yuli

For Yuli, a Haitian woman living in the Dominican Republic for more than 35 years, it has been an ongoing struggle to raise her children with dignity as she deals with her precarious immigration status. In the midst of government regularisation, imminent deportation and personal upheaval, the questions arise: What really makes us belong to a place? How are the links between the land and its people made?
