Madame Pipi

“Madame Pipi” follows the lives of Haitian women bathroom attendants working in the nightclubs in Miami. Relatively invisible, underpaid and underappreciated, their stories are a journey of triumph as they navigate their patron’s personalities for tips. Despite the rising cost of living and the uncertainty of COVID-19 shutting down nightlife in Miami, their remittances – earned through tips – coupled with larger contributions from the Haitian diaspora fuel more than one third of the GDP in Haiti.
