HAITI: THE UNTOLD STORY
Wednesday, September 13th
Sonoma State University
Student Union, Multi-Purpose Room
Filmmaker Kevin Pina challenges the contemporary view of Haiti, revealing the hidden role of the 'international community' in Haitian politics. This provocative and lively film takes the viewer into parts of Haiti where few Western journalists dare to tread, and includes shocking footage of unreported human rights abuses, some which have been astonishingly conducted by UN forces. Pina’s film stands out because it connects the tragic events in Haiti with what he assesses as foreign intervention designed to deter democracy.
