About the film:
An hour south of Miami, the elected president of the Western Hemisphere’s poorest nation has twice been forced from office with the complicity of the international community. “ARISTIDE and the Endless Revolution” investigates the tragic events that led to the second violent expulsion of Jean Bertrand Aristide from Haiti. This documentary reveals the tangled web of hope, deceit, and political violence that has brought the world’s first black republic to its knees.
More About the film: www.aristidethefilm.com
“Aristide and the Endless Revolution is a film that should be seen and discussed. Many of the titles at this year’s VIFF can broaden our understanding of the world, and of others’ realities. Few, however, will match Aristide in calling forth urgent political action”
Richard Peña – Program Director – Film Society of Lincoln Center
« The film is great. An awesome job of getting the recent historical context (1991 coup, etc.) in with the slave revolution/independence. A non-Haiti follower is assured an exciting, informative, powerful work ..Director Nicolas Rossier bravely exposes this great truth: the fire of the slave revolution continues to burn in every hungry Haitian’s heart.” Thomas Griffin – Thomas Griffin – Author of the Human Rights Investigation on Haiti, March 2004, Miami School of Law
“Compelling and informative, this documentary by Nicolas Rossier examines events in Haiti–including the history leading up to the 2004 kidnapping of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide–via interviews with a wide range of opponents and supporters as well with the former parish priest himself”.
Vancouver International Film Festival
“Nicolas Rossier’s gift to future generations……It is a critically important work concerning an event that should not be consigned to forgotten history”
JACK RANDOM – Author of Jazzman Chronicles
