Assistance mortelle (Fatal assistance)

Directed by former Haitian Minister of Culture Raoul Peck. After the massive earthquake that struck in January 2010, killing an estimated 250,000 and leaving 1.2 million homeless, a flood of aid and agencies arrived at Haiti's door. Some had an agenda to help, others had an agenda to protect their own assets and interests. Three years later, what state has this aid left the Haitian people in? Peck unveils the true face of international aid as a failure full of organizational ineptitude, broken promises and hidden agendas, painting a vivid picture that the "aid" of foreign powers is more realistically an occupation. 2013. 26 min.
