External Event- Fim Screening of the Documentary Fatal Assistance

As GALHA's play is now a sell out CLHG member Aida has suggested this documentary as an alternative for Friday night. We suggest you make your own plans for tickets, and Aida has suggested people meet afterwards to discuss the film over a drink.

This is one of the movies in the Human Rights Watch film festival.

Award-winning Haitian-born filmmaker Raoul Peck takes us on a two-year journey inside the challenging, contradictory and colossal rebuilding efforts in post-earthquake Haiti. Taking a 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 impact of worldwide humanitarian and development aid, revealing the disturbing extent of a general failure. We learn that a major portion of the money pledged to Haiti was never disbursed and never made it into the reconstruction. FATAL ASSISTANCE leads us to one clear conclusion: current aid policies and practices in Haiti need to stop immediately.

Official Selection, Berlin Film Festival 2013.

Presented in association with ActionAid UK (www.actionaid.org.uk).
