DIRECTOR: RAOUL PECK

A “potent, persuasive, and quietly furious documentary” (The NY Times) that wades into the quagmire that was the post-earthquake rebuilding process in Haiti, giving a clear-eyed accounting of the myriad shortcomings of current donor-driven international humanitarian aid policies and celebrity fundraising efforts in addressing an urgent cataclysm, and treading a road to hell paved with good intentions. Shot over two years, Peck’s film is perhaps the quintessential nonfiction document of this national tragedy, and a rattling call for reform.
