Haiti Redux*

From the debris of Haiti’s devastating earthquake, organizations and individuals work to unearth innovative ways to rebuild a more stable and sustainable society. A study of post- catastrophe reconstruction, the film shows how social entrepreneurs, NGOs, governments and community leaders are collaborating to help restore and construct sustainable communities primed for growth and prosperity. Featuring students from New York University’s Schack Institute of Real Estate, Haiti Redux explores the process of reconstructing schools, housing and infrastructure in Haiti.

    Looks like I won't be able to make it this evening. Really wanted to be there! Looking forward to the discussion coming out of this event. Had my questions prepared for the Q&A with the filmmaker. Haiti is a place near to my heart.

      Bon', it is near to my heart as well. The film and Q&A was bittersweet for me. A few months after the earthquake I went to Haiti (Ayiti) to volunteer for a week with a group of students from UMD and most if not all of us left there feeling like we got very little done. I've actually been avoiding going back there because of not wanting to have that same feeling again. From seeing what the NYU students were able to accomplish from their time there, which was almost exactly what my group went there to do, I felt a little jealous. However, the filmmaker did make it known that due to many reasons, the process of rebuilding down there is very slow-paced and therefore, one shouldn't go with the expectation that they will get alot done utilizing just the vacation time they get from their job (as I did).

      Still, the phrase "slowly but surely" came to mind when seeing what has been done in Haiti since I was there as far as progress in rebuilding and has become re-influential for me to consider getting back there to assist.

    The lobby it is then. We can meet there at 6, meet/mingle, then take our seats at the 6:15. Today's outfit - burgandy hat, darker burgandy jacket, brown sweater, black slacks.

      Thanks Stephanie. For those of us who haven't been to the location before (like me) is there a place ideal for the group to meet-up?

      The lobby works just fine....you guys can get together right before you head in for the screening.
