Baseball in Time of Cholera

David Darg and Bryn Mooser, 2012, 28 min, Haiti

As a Cholera epidemic rages in Haiti, the United Nations denies it is responsible for introducing the disease despite glaring evidence suggesting Nepalese peacekeepers are to blame. Baseball in the Time of Cholera is the story of a young Haitian boy who plays in Haiti's first little league baseball team and the Haitian Lawyer seeking justice against the UN. As the epidemic spreads, the two stories intersect in the struggle for survival and justice.

Post screening Q&A with  director Bryn Mooser, Beatrice Lindstrom (Human Rights Attorney, at the Institute for Justice & Democracy in Haiti) and Moderated by Dr. Steeve Coupeau, President NYIHA MEDIA.
