ARISTIDE and the ENDLESS REVOLUTION
Dir. Nicolas Rossier US/Haiti 2005 (82m)
Only an hour south of Miami in Haiti, the Western Hemisphere's poorest nation, the elected president Jean Bertrand Aristide has twice been forced from office with the complicity of the international community. An engrossing examination of the oft-supressed story of the coup d'etat, Rossier's film investigates the events that led to the second violent expulsion of Aristide, and reveals the tangled web of hope, deceit and political violence that has brought the world's first black republic to its knees. Speakers from the Haiti Action Committee will be present at evening screenings.
