"Only an hour south of Miami, the elected president of the Western Hemisphere's poorest nation, Jean Bertrand Aristide, has twice been forced from office with the complicity of the international community. An intelligent and engrossing examination of the oft-suppressed story of the 2004 coup d'etat in Haiti, Rossier's film investigates the events that led to the second violent expulsion of Aristide from Haiti, and reveals the tangled web of hope, deceit, and political violence. Features Aristide, Sen. Maxine Waters, Noam Chomsky, Rep. Charles Rangel."

This is an awareness-raising event, however donations are graciously receieved towards Haitian-led and Haitian-directed relief projects.
