‘Fatal Assistance’ ponders the Haiti earthquake aftermath – Movies – Boston.com

FatalAssistance_3VelvA4On Jan. 12, 2010, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit Haiti, killing some 250,000 people, injuring millions, leaving a million and a half homeless. Haitian filmmaker Raoul Peck, in his earnest but obfuscating documentary, “Fatal Assistance,” conveys the horror of those 75 seconds with a few black-and-white images taken from security cameras. But it is after the catastrophe, says Peck in voice-over, that the real catastrophe happens. via – Boston.com.
