Episode Summary

When Haiti’s capital was recently flattened in a massive earthquake, the world’s media marshaled their forces and descended on the disaster zone. In this episode, IFC travels throughout Haiti—from devastated Port-au-Prince to the beautiful, untouched countryside—with Andrew Berends, a photojournalist and documentarian who’s worked in Iraq and was kidnapped in Nigeria while working on his film, “Delta Boys,” an exploration of the Niger Delta and the growing militancy in the country. Interwoven into Andrew’s stories are those of other journalists who share their different takes and approaches on how to cover a disaster. We hear from CNN’s local “fixer,” who spent three weeks filming his own activity as he guided Anderson Cooper and Ivan Watson around his shattered hometown. We meet up with Dan Rather, who has just returned from the country with hours of footage, and Daniel Morel, a Haitian photojournalist who takes a critical view of the international media’s reporting. He thinks their job is simply to observe.moreless
