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.

The first author to become a billionaire from her work, her imaginative tales of a boy wizard have generated the most popular and profitable series of books and movies ever produced, and caused hundreds of millions of kids to rediscover reading in an age of texting and Twitter.
