HAITI: WHERE DID THE MONEY GO?

 A doc that asks the pivotal question—why did so much money buy so little relief? And why are so many still living in squalor?

SYNOPSIS:  In the United States alone, half of all households gave a total of $1.4 billion to charities, yet almost two years later more than half a million people still live in squalid camps. Only a few have access to drinking water. Sanitation is woefully inadequate. Malnutrition and cholera are on the rise. What happened?

 

BASEBALL IN THE TIME OF CHOLERA

An intimate look into the fight for survival and justice among cholera victims in Haiti.

 SYNOPSIS:  As the cholera epidemic rages in Haiti, the UN denies responsibility for introducing the disease despite mounting evidence. This is the story of Joseph, a young baseball player, and a Haitian lawyer fighting for compensation for the victims. As the epidemic spreads, the two stories intersect in the struggle for survival and justice.
