Bitter Cane – Haiti under the Duvaliers will play Thursday, August 2, at 7 p.m. at the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalist Church, Cedar and Bonita in Berkeley. Admission will be $5-10, no one turned away.
Bitter Cane was filmed clandestinely in Haiti in the 1970s during the Duvalier dictatorship. It accurately portrays the conditions and repression under which Haitians lived at that time. With the recent policies promoted by the fraudulently “selected” Martelly government, many Haitians fear the repeat of these terrible times. Join Haiti Action Committee for the film and discussion about Haiti, past and present.
