Somewhat forgotten, in the middle of what the international media outlets
are calling a chaotic situation, is that 2004 marks Haiti's 200th Birthday.
Animated from paintings by thirteen of Haiti's foremost artists, BLACK DAWN
recounts the country's founding through the eyes of two enslaved Africans,
and celebrates the strength and artistry of the Haitian people.

"Superbly animated... an authentic view of Haitian culture... recommended
for all ages." - Film Library Quarterly
"Portrays the culture and history of a unique people in a sensitive,
colorful, and artistically rich fashion." - FilmNews
"A colorful meld of visuals, music, and narration that sketches the noble
origins of a people's nation...enlightening and entertaining." - Booklist

While BLACK DAWN animates Haiti's past, PROFIT AND NOTHING BUT! illuminates
the present, and in-so-doing establishes why so many Haitians are in a
state of desperation.

"Superb! A complete and thought provoking analysis of the current global
economic system... [PROFIT AND NOTHING BUT!] provides important insight
into the realities of today's global economy, and does so in a manner that
is simple in its explanation, yet far-reaching in its conclusions. Raoul
Peck has produced an excellent work." - Economic Justice News
