Life and Debt by S BLACK( Visual )

17 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 1,304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary examines the effects of World Bank and the International Monetary Fund loans on the infrastructure Jamaica established in the wake of independence from the UK in 1962. Seven billion in debt (circa 2000), Jamaica has seen its agricultural industries laid to waste by the impossibility of competing with subsidized, multi-national American based companies. The poverty of an "average" Jamaican in a shantytown near Kingston is in stark contrast to the luxurious tropical fantasy paradise experienced by tourists in posh Montego Bay. In a dog-eat-dog global economy, the US and its multinational corporate clients have all the advantages, while Jamaica has no agriculture, no industry, and no tax base--only ever-growing debt

Failing Haiti by Rod Paul( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Haiti, a nation forged by a slave rebellion 200 years ago, still carries the scars of its independence and abandonment. Subjected to an endless stream of tyrannical regimes, Haiti appeared to emerge from oppression and dictatorship with the return of a charismatic young priest who defied a brutal military regime, only to be swallowed once again in despair and dependency. This is a nation caught in a tragic, downward spiral. Through the perspective of the Clinton and Bush administrations' handling of Haiti, one can see why the U.S. has difficulty in exporting democracy and building respect for human rights. From sources working in Haiti with the government, rebel insurgents, and convicted drug smugglers, the film follows the violent events leading to the departure of President Aristide. Many participants in his ouster in February 2004 appear in the film. This is also a story of America¹s attempt to impose western democratic values on a society steeped in profoundly distinct traditions and culture. The film provides a brief history of Haiti, followed by events of 2004-2005, using news footage and stills

Haiti, land of tragedy : Haiti, land of hope( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The numbers alone are stunning: 8 million inhabitants, 70 percent of whom live below the poverty line; a life expectancy of 50 years; a 65 percent illiteracy rate; and a 70 percent unemployment rate. Such is the recent population in Haiti, which ironically had its origins cast in optimism: the Haitians were the first people to abolish slavery in 1797 and establish a Black republic. Yet the following years have brought the island a succession of violence, chaotic politics, and the railroading of national sovereignty for the benefit of few. This thought-provoking documentary traces what Jean-Bertrand Aristide calls Haiti's 'linear history' back to its discovery by Columbus in the late 15th century and the violent process of colonization to the present."

Haitians be treated justly as God's people, that all have food and shelter, and that all take pride in their own Creole language and culture. Though his story is far from over, as The Village Voice has said, "The priest who became a politician to make heaven on earth a reality is now a president in exile left much where he started, with only his faith to guide him."
