    • Synopsis
    • Award-winning Haitian born filmmaker Raoul Peck takes us on a 2-year journey inside the challenging, contradictory and colossal rebuilding efforts in post-earthquake Haiti. The film dives headlong into the complexity of the reconstruction process and the practice and impact of worldwide humanitarian and development aid, revealing in the most disturbing way the extent of a general failure. Offering a devastating indictment of the international community’s post-disaster idealism, FATAL ASSISTANCE leads to the only plausible outcome: immediate stop of current aid policies and practice.
