FILM – Haiti: The Call of the Conch to Battle – 7pm Thurs. Nov. 15 – 2994 Douglas (BCGEU Hall)

Film by Belgian director Anne Delstanche. It tells the story of Haiti’s devastating 2010 earthquake and aftermath through the voices of Haitians and the Cuban medical teams serving the country. The earthquake crushed an already devastated country but also saw the expansion of a large international solidarity movement. What forms of cooperation are developing now and with what results?
