Haiti's Piggy Bank

The Story of the Loss and Recovery of the Creole Pig

  • In the wake of Haiti's catastrophic January 2010 earthquake and the "military occupation first" response of the U.S. government it is instructive to watch this 1985 documentary that recounts the efforts of Haitians to recover from the U.S. eradication of the Creole pig, the sustaining asset of the peasants. Includes narration by Edwidge Danticat, author of <i>Farming the Bones</i> <b>We are presenting this film to benefit Haitian relief.
