It Stays With You: Use of Force by UN Peacekeepers in Haiti (2017, 50 mins.)
Between 2005-2007 UN peacekeeping troops carried out several raids on Cité Soleil, a severely economically depressed neighbourhood of Port-au- Prince. Although the raids were specifically targeted against leaders of criminal gangs, scores of civilians were killed and many more injured.
This film returns to Cité Soleil to examine the impact of those raids on the community and to find out how survivors of the raids have fared in the ten years since. The film is produced using participatory practices, where the survivors retain control over their own contribution and were consulted during the filmmaking process and prior to public viewing.
Post screening discussion with Andy Leak, Secretary of the Haiti Support Group and Professor of Francophone Studies, UCL, and directors, Siobhán Wills and Cahal McLaughlin.
