A year after Haiti-born award-winning filmmaker Raoul Peck first screened his documentary about the international community’s failure to rebuild post-quake Haiti to Haitian and European audiences, the film has finally made its way to South Florida.
Fatal Assistance will be on a limited run Thursday through Sunday at O Cinema Miami Shores at Miami Theater Center, 9806 NE Second Ave. Peck, who lives in Paris and is currently filming in Haiti, will be at the 7:30 p.m. Friday and 8 p.m. Saturday showings to answer questions. Ticket prices are $10.50 for adults, and $9 for seniors and students. Thursday’s showings are at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. Other show times can be viewed on the cinema’s website at www.o-cinema.org.
The film’s South Florida debut is being sponsored by the Green Family Foundation, which also has teamed up with Florida International University’s Latin America and Caribbean Center to screen the film for students and faculty. Peck will speak from 3 to 4 p.m. Friday at FIU Biscayne Bay Campus, 3000 NE 151st St., North Miami, ACII Bldg, Room 161.
