Assistance mortelle by Raoul Peck( Visual )

2 editions published in 2013 in Haitian French Creole and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Haitian-born director and former Minister of Culture Raoul Peck's newest film is an indictment of Western aid to Haiti. 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's powerful and thoroughly investigative film shows all the levels at which aid, NGOs and political ploys have left Haiti in turmoil. He unveils the true face of international aid as a failure full of organizational ineptitude, broken promises and hidden agendas. This must-see film paints a vivid picture that the "aid" of foreign powers is more realistically an occupation

"Whatever it takes chronicles the struggles and triumphs of the very first year of the Bronx Center for Science & Mathematics, an innovative public high school set in NYC's South Bronx. This deeply emotional, character-driven documentary focuses on Edward Tom, the school's dynamic rookie principal, and Sharifea Baskerville, a talented by troubled ninth-grade girl. The personal stories of this school's students and staff call to mind larger themes of school reform and the need for educators, parents, and policymakers to prioritize the transformation of the public school system so that all children can receive a quality education. Gritty realistic, yet ultimately triumphant, Whatever it takes paints a compelling picture of cutting-edge ideas and dedicated individuals, united in their vision to restore hope to a broken community"--Container
