Lincoln Center to Screen FATAL ASSISTANCE, Begin. 2/28
by Movies News Desk - Jan 30, 2014

FATAL ASSISTANCE is award-winning Haitian born filmmaker Raoul Peck's two-year journey inside the challenging, contradictory and colossal rebuilding efforts in post-earthquake Haiti.

We learn that a major portion of the money pledged to Haiti was never disbursed, nor made it into the actual reconstruction. Fatal Assistance leads us to one clear conclusion: current aid policies and practice in Haiti need to stop immediately. (Description by Human Rights Watch Film Festival) (more...)
