The documentary Fatal Assistance and Q&A with director Raoul Peck

In case you missed the meetup to see Where Did the Money Go, here is another opportunity to find out what has been happening in Haiti since the devastating earthquake. Fatal Assistance (Assistance mortelle) by Raoul Peck (Haiti/France/US, 2012, 100 min.). Raoul Peck takes us on a two-year journey inside the challenging, contradictory, and colossal rebuilding efforts in post-earthquake Haiti. Through its provocative and radical point of view, Fatal Assistance offers a devastating indictment of the international community’s post-disaster idealism. The film dives headlong into the complexity of the reconstruction process and the practice and impact of worldwide humanitarian and development aid, revealing the disturbing extent of a general failure. In English and French with English subtitles. Discussion with director follows the Feb 21 screening. Tickets are only $11.00. Here is a link to the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGPbqO5ocrE

    I'm definitely going. Can I purchase my tickets when I get there or do I need to buy them before the showing to secure my spot?

      The MFA has a pretty big theater so I'm not anticipating a sold out crowd, but I could be wrong. It's always better to be safe than sorry. You can purchase tickets online here: http://www.mfa.org/pr...­
