Aristide and the Endless Revolution is a 2005 political documentary that focuses on the complex history of Haiti, the first black republic as well as the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere. Director Nicolas Rossier explores their long struggle for independence through the events surrounding the 2004 coup d'etat that removed President Jean Bertrand Aristide from office. The country has experienced a long and troubled history with the international community from the French conquest to the United States' complicity in the ouster of its democratically elected president. The film balances interviews from many perspectives. From Haiti, both Aristide and the Duvaliers give their countering views of their country's situation. From the United States, the filmmakers include activists like Noam Chomsky and Danny Glover, as well as government officials like Colin Powell and Donald Rumsfeld. Aristide and the Endless Revolution reveals the complicated past and challenging future of the American neighbor, just an hour south of Miami, Florida.

    An absorbing piece of investigative journalism.

  • 70

    The New York Times

    Nicolas Rossier's cohesive documentary covers this complex incident - and Haiti's deteriorating condition since Mr. Aristide's exile - in a taut, well-balanced 82 minutes.

  • 70

    Variety Robert Koehler

    A vital if less than objective slice of film journalism on the U.S.'s troubled history in the Third World.
