Haiti: Unfinished Country

A film by Whitney Dow, Daniel Morel and Jane Regan

UNFINISHED COUNTRY, premiering Tuesday, September 6 at 9 pm on the PBS series Wide Angle, examines Haiti's struggle to create democracy. As the western hemisphere's poorest country tries to organize for November presidential elections, hardened veterans of its endless cycle of uprisings and downfalls are trading guns for voter registration cards, warily giving the election process their support. But not everyone agrees, and the country's apathy, protests and violence put the entire process at risk. Through unfettered access to reformed gangsters,presidential hopefuls, election workers, and potential voters, this co-production by Haiti's Wozo Productions ( http://www.wozoproductions.org) and New York's Two Tone Productions reveals life on the streets, in the mountains and among its pow
er brokers as the country attempts to fashion a true representative government out of a volatile failed state. Featuring music from innovative Haitian groups Freedom and Masters.

Tuesday, September 6 at 9 p.m. on PBS
