The Suit Makes the Man is a short film developed and co-directed by David MacKay. MacKay says the story of the The Suit Makes the Man came to him while he was in Haiti working on an International Sustainable Community Assistance (ISCA) project. A discussion with ISCA’s Haitian project co-ordinator, Brieyre Théodore, led him to explain the pitfalls of international development through this story. The film is about a poor man who unexpectedly gets a small inheritance and decides to buy an expensive suit so that he doesn’t look like a poor man. The film was shot in York and at the Green Man on University Ave, Charlottetown. Graham Putman stars as the poor man; Cynthia King as his wife; and Jordan Cameron is the suit salesman. Jocelynn Bordeaux co-directed and Peter Holden was editor. The film is being used both as fundraiser for the ISCA and as a way to engage the public in discussions about appropriate approaches to economic development.
