Bay Area filmmaker and journalist Kevin Pina will introduce his 2007 documentary "HAITI: We Must Kill the Bandits" at the First United Methodist Church, 9 Ross Valley Drive (at Fourth Street) in San Rafael on Friday, September 14, at 7:30 PM. Following the film, Mr. Pina will give discuss the current situation in Haiti and answer questions.
Haiti Documentary: Kill The Bandets!
This documentary vividly chronicles the events surrounding the ouster of Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide on Feb. 29, 2004. In a never before seen interview, former prime minister of Haiti, Yvon Neptune, confirms that President Aristide was forced out of the country against his will.
Three years in the making, "Haiti: We Must Kill the Bandits" takes its title from a quote by Brazilian General Heleno Ribera, who was the top military commander of UN forces in Haiti for two years. After arguing with protestors, he loses his cool and calls them thieves who are taxing UN security forces with frivolous demonstrations. The scene ends in a melee with UN forces using tear gas and firing into the air to break up the otherwise peaceful demonstration.
The film also explains why the UN stands accused of a massacre of unarmed civilians following Ribera's orders to raid the seaside shanty town of Cite Soleil on July 6, 2004.
This event is sponsored by Marin Interfaith Task Force on the Americas. A $5-10 donation is requested. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. The venue is wheelchair accessible. For more information, please call 415/924-3227, email [email protected], or go to www.mitfamericas.org.
