After the terrible January 2010 earthquake in Port-au-Prince, an intelectual bourgeois couple struggles to reinvent a life amid the rubbles of their luxurious home.

Needing money to survive, the couple decides to rent the remaining habitable part of the villa to “Alex”, a high-level foreign relief worker. He brings with him in the house, Andrémise, an ambitious 17 years old Haitian girl of modest background. Now the couple, strained by the loss of their social position, their ideals, their dreams and desires must face this toxic intrusion.

Fatal Assistance



Fatal Assistance Poster

Haitian born fllmmaker Raoul Peck takes us on a 2 year journey inside the challenging contradictory and colossal rebuilding efforts in post-earthquake Haiti.

Through its provocative and radical point of view, the film dives headlong into the complexity of the reconstruction process and the practice and impact of worldwide humanitarian and development aid, revealing in the most disturbing way, the extent of a general failure. This crushing fact based documentary film leads to the only plausible outcome: immediate stop of current aid policies and practice.
