CAP-HAITIEN — The primary way to watch "Vakans," the first movie Olivier Martelly produced, was supposed to be through his streaming website, Stream With BigO. Martelly also planned to show the movie in theaters, including those in Haiti. 

After premiering the movie at Little Haiti Cultural Center in Miami Feb. 6, the film became available on Stream with BigO last week. Martelly felt "proud" when people started streaming the movie.
