25271: Ives: (announce) Rezistans showing in Ft. Lauderdale (fwd)
From: K. M. Ives <email@example.com>
The award winning feature documentary "Rezistans" (1997) by Katharine Kean
will be shown this Friday, June 3 at 7:30 PM
at the IBEW Union Hall, 201 SE 24th Street, off of State Road 84, (take SR84
east from I- 95).
A discussion with the director will follow the screening.
This award-winning film chronicles the political events and human tragedy
surrounding the 1991 military coup d'etat in Haiti and the bloody
dictatorship that followed. It presents a seering indictment not only of the
U.S. Central Intelligence Agency's role in the turmoil, but also that of the
powerful and reclusive Haitian bourgeoisie. Unlike the mainstream media,
REZISTANS does not portray the Haitian people as helpless victims. It
focuses instead on their creative and courageous resistance, and the deep
roots of that resistance in Haitian history and culture. With Antoine
Izméry, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, Father Gerard Jean-Juste, Noam Chomsky,
Morisseau Leroy and many others.
"...a sweeping political history of Haiti..."
