Telling the story of Haiti: After the Earthquake

American filmmaker Jon Bougher was in Haiti when a powerful earthquake struck the island nation two years ago. At the time, he was making a film with Roman Safiullin about two activists and their work in Port-au-Prince. You can watch a clip from “Bound by Haiti”, seen above. The earthquake affected Jon deeply and he’s now training young filmmakers to make short documentaries about life in Haiti since the disaster. You can watch Isha Sesay’s interview with Jon about the project below. And this isn’t the first time Jon has been on Back|Story. He appeared on the show last year to talk about another powerful documentary he co-produced called “Unnoticed: Children of Kabul”.

    Hi Frank,Great name BTW. I've always asked my staff not to use the .po.mo mehtod as I've found it causes lots of confusion when trying to translate plugins. It's a typical developer answer to what I've always considered a relatively simple problem. So I ask that they create a simple text file instead.Just use that file and change the text inside.-Frank

      I didn't watch the special on Haiti eiethr, but I did donate! My school also asked everyone to pay at least $5 for a casual dress day (we have a strict dress code and it's always nice to have a break from it). Everyone donated the minimum, and a lot of people donated even more (including a kid who donated $150!) Our little school of 250 kids and 75 staff members raised well over $3,000! I think everyone needs to help out however they can!
