Voices of Haitians on the Future of Haiti: A Haiti Earthquake Screening
Black is Back Coalition, Harlem Tenants Council, Black Agenda Report an Harlem Anti-War Coalition Present:
Voices of Haitians on the Future of Haiti  

Haiti: The Politics of Rebuilding
Faultlines, 2010, 23 min.
This short documentary looks at the politics of rebuilding Haiti just one month after the devastating earthquake of January 12th, 2010. With billions of dollars devoted to U.S. and UN-led aid efforts flooding the country, the decade's-long debate about Haitian development has intensified in the wake of this most recent disaster. The film asks how aid money should be spent in reconstruction, and how reconstruction may or may not contribute to the goals of long-term growth and economic independence in Haiti.
 
Haiti: Six Months On
Faultlines, 2010, 23 min.
Made six months after the earthquake, the landscape of Port-Au-Prince remained (and still remains) virtually unchanged. Dominated by rubble and a rainbow patchwork of tents occupied by an estimated one and a half million displaced Haitians, most major reconstruction efforts are on hold. Inevitably, the government will award most contracts to foreign companies, creating a booming business out of disaster relief and reconstruction. Through conversations with people living in camps and informal settlements throughout Port Au Prince and the countryside, this film reveals the increased skepticism and hostility of Haitians when it comes to the efforts of politicians and NGOs post-disaster.

The Aid Scam in Haiti
Tony Savino and Kim Ives, 2010, 9 min.
A sobering look at Haiti earthquake "aid" and where its really going.

AFTER THE SCREENING: Panel discussion with Roger Leduc (KAKOLA: Haitian Coalition to Support the Struggle in Haiti), Marquez Osson (WBAI Radio, "Haiti: The Struggle Continues"), Ray LaForest and Colette Pean (December 12th Movement), Nellie Bailey (Harlem Tenants Council) and others TBA.
