Haitian Film Series: From Haiti's Ashes

Friday, December 3, 7:00 PM
None
Producer, Stephanie Collins; Director, Patrick Forbes (2011) 60 min. The Haiti earthquake of 12 January 2010 killed thousands, toppled buildings, destroyed the capital and left the government in ruins. Now, Haiti risks crumbling to nothing. The country's future rests in the hands of one-man, Irish telecoms billionaire Denis O'Brien. He is armed with cash (he owns the island's mobile phone network), Bill Clinton's clout (he runs Clinton's Haitian interests), and the support of two unlikely allies - Lesley Voltaire, the dark Lord of Haitian politics who is running for president, and John McAslan, the outspoken Scottish architect, currently rebuilding the largest station in Europe, London's King's Cross. Can the three of them pull Haiti back from the brink?
