Life and debt ( Visual )

This documentary examines the effects of World Bank and the International Monetary Fund loans on the infrastructure Jamaica established in the wake of independence from the UK in 1962. Seven billion in debt (circa 2000), Jamaica has seen its agricultural industries laid to waste by the impossibility of competing with subsidized, multi-national American based companies. The poverty of 'average' Jamaican in a shantytown near Kingston is in stark contrast to the luxurious tropical fantasy paradise experienced by tourists in posh Montego Bay. In a dog-eat-dog global economy, the US and its multinational corporate clients have all the advantages, while Jamaica has no agriculture, no industry, and no tax base--only ever-growing debt.

Failing Haiti ( Visual )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 42 libraries worldwide
Haiti, a nation forged by a slave rebellion 200 years ago, still carries the scars of its independence and abandonment. Subjected to an endless stream of tyrannical regimes, Haiti appeared to emerge from oppression and dictatorship with the return of a charismatic young priest who defied a brutal military regime, only to be swallowed once again in despair and dependency. This is a nation caught in a tragic, downward spiral. Through the perspective of the Clinton and Bush administrations' handling of Haiti, one can see why the U.S. has difficulty in exporting democracy and building respect for human rights. From sources working in Haiti with the government, rebel insurgents, and convicted drug smugglers, the film follows the violent events leading to the departure of President Aristide. Many participants in his ouster in February 2004 appear in the film. This is also a story of America¹s attempt to impose western democratic values on a society steeped in profoundly distinct traditions and culture. The film provides a brief history of Haiti, followed by events of 2004-2005, using news footage and stills.
