Originally planned as a documentary about democracy coming to Haiti with the election of Jean-Betrand Aristide in December 1990, filming had to be stopped due to another military coup. Kevin Pina, the filmmaker returned to Haiti and spent the next three weeks chronicling the brutality and machinations of Haiti's new military leaders and their supporters and then again in 1994 in to film Aristide's return. He has since then filmed another 27 min update. Part of the first film together with the latest update will be shown. 57 min, 1998

Pierre La Boissiere, a Haitian and an activist for many years in the U.S. and the founder of Haiti Action Committee in Berkeley, will present the films and lead a discussion after the screening.
