A North-South Monologue

Haut de la page

In this film on foreign aid and investment in a developing country, a filmmaker and a journalist from Canada travel to Haiti, where they seek out rich and poor to find out where foreign dollars go. They attend a press conference given by President-for-life Duvalier; they interview managers of foreign companies; they speak to workers. Walking the streets of Port-au-Prince and the drought-stricken countryside, they are confronted by both extreme luxury and abject poverty. They discover that a North-South dialogue does not exist, and that the profit motive lurks behind the myth of foreign aid.
