Profit & Nothing But!, or, Impolite Thoughts on the Class Struggle

Loading...
Who said that the economy serves mankind? What is this world where one third of the population, in the rich countries, or more precisely the wealthiest two percent in these countries, control everything? A world where the economy is law, where this law of the strongest is imposed on the rest of humanity? Why do we accept this cynical and immoral state of being? What happened to Solidarity? And to the militants? These are the questions Profit and Nothing But! asks. Capitalism has succeeded in convincing us that it is the only truth, the only morality we need. It has even convinced its opponents that their failure lies within the normal scheme of things. Raoul Peck contrasts this heavily documented illumination of the capitalist system with the devastating reality in his native land, H [...]

Poto Mitan: Haitian Women, Pillars of the Global Economy

Loading...
"Told through the compelling lives of five courageous Haitian women workers, POTO MITAN gives the global economy a human face. Each woman's personal story explains neoliberal globalization, how it is gendered, and how it impacts Haiti. And while POTO MITAN offers an in-depth understanding of Haiti, its focus on women's subjugation, worker exploitation, poverty, and resistance demonstrates that these are global struggles" -- Container.

Children of Shadows

Loading...
The film follows the restavèk children of Haiti as they go through their daily chores--the endless cycle of cooking, washing, sweeping, mopping, going to the market, going to fetch water, going to run errands, etc. In hearbreaking interviews, the children speak openly and shyly about the lives they are forced to lead. The "aunts" (adoptive caretakers) speak openly and proudly of the vast mountain of work that "their" restavèk does for them. The camera goes deep into the countryside to interview the peasant families as to what kind of situation would force them to give away one or several of their children. Haitian social workers and economists who have spent time with the restavèks speak of the causes and possible solutions to this situation.

The Agronomist

Loading...
Tells the story of Haitian national hero, journalist, and freedom fighter Jean Dominique, whom Demme first met and filmed in 1986. As owner and operator of his nation's oldest and only free radio station, Dominique was frequently at odds with his country's various repressive governments and spent much of the 80's and early 90's in exile in New York, where Demme continued to interview him over the years. Dominique fought tirelessly against his country's overwhelming injustice, oppression, and poverty, but it was his shocking and still-unsolved assassination in April of 2000 that gave the director the impetus to assemble more than a decade's worth of material into a celebration of this dynamic man's life and legacy.
