    Raoul Peck will be at the Film Society of Lincoln Center on Wednesday, June 19 and at the  IFC Film Center on Thursday, June 20 to present the U.S. premiere of his new documentary Fatal Assistance.

    Peck is an award-winning Haitian-born filmmaker, and in Fatal Assistance he leads us through the two-year process of colossal rebuilding efforts in post-earthquake Haiti. The film dives headfirst into the complexity of the reconstruction process and the impact of global humanitarian aid, revealing the disturbing extent to which these aid efforts were a failure. Through this film the viewer learns that a large portion of the money pledged to Haiti was never actually received, and the grand plans for  reconstruction largely failed to materialize.
