Monday 4th February 2008, 8.30pm at the Cube Cinema, Stokes Croft, Bristol Entry £2/£3 (but nobody refused entry for a lack of funds.) - Tonight's film night looks at Haiti: A French and Creole speaking Latin American country located in the Greater Antilles archipelago on the Caribbean island of Hispaniola. It has a rousing history, having overthrown slavery via a mass revolution in the 1790s yet today it is the Western Hemisphere's poorest nation.
We planned to show 'Aristide And The Endless Revolution', however due to postage issues with our copy of the DVD arriving, we will either show that or another acclaimed documentary about Haiti; The Agronomist (directed by Jonathan Demme) follows the life of Jean Dominique, who ran the Haiti's first independent radio station, Radio Haiti-Inter, during multiple repressive regimes. "Rousing, heartbreaking...the movie is aglow with its subject's clear-eyed optimism." Philadelphia Weekly (96% review score, Rotten Tomatoes) Full article.
