Fatal Assistance Film Screenings

Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts screening Fatal Assistance by Raoul Peck, acclaimed Haitian filmmaker.

WHAT:

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.
