About the film:
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 that has brought the world's
first black republic to its knees.
An in-depth interview with Aristide (now in exile in South Africa) is
juxtaposed with the views of a wide range of supporters and critics,
including US Assistant Secretary of State Roger Noriega. A complex historical
truth emerges as international interests concerned with suppressing popular
democracy and ending Aristide's reforms co-mingle with embargos, debt service
(for loans Haiti never received), systemic violence and human rights
violations that erupted as the situation worsened.
