Poto Mitan

At the NWSA (I feel like every post begins with this), I attended a session entitled “Poto Mitan: Haitian Women, Pillars of the Global Economy.” Quite simply, it was a showing of the film Poto Mitan, followed by an open discussion with the filmmakers.

As I’m taking a class on Human Rights this semester, this film keep popping back into my head. I’m not sure what it is about it: Maybe the simple narration. Maybe the honest reflections of women wise-beyond-their-years on the effects of globalization. Maybe because it’s so real.

I just wanted to share. The film isn’t cheap ($29.99 for the home viewing copy), but at least take a look at the website. There is also a take action section if you are so inclined.
