Announcement :: Human Rights : International
Screening of Haiti Human Rights Documentary with Jonathan Demme
14 Feb 2010
On Monday March 1 at 2 pm, The Coolidge Corner Theatre will host a special benefit screening of Jonathan Demme’s moving documentary The Agronomist. The internationally acclaimed director, recipient of this year’s 2010 Coolidge Award, will introduce the film and answer questions after the screening. Proceeds from this event will go to support Haiti earthquake relief through the on-the-ground nonprofit organization, Partners in Health.
The Agronomist is about the life and work of Jean Dominique, human rights activist, investigative journalist, and host of the independent radio station Radio Haiti-Inter. His broadcasts throughout the early 1970s were a bold break from Haiti’s predominant government-run media, offering enlightening stories, in the native language of Creole, about global issues to the people of the island. Dominique was forced to temporarily leave Haiti twice, in the early ‘80s and again in the early ‘90s, but remained an outspoken advocate of freedom of the press and the Haitian community until his assassination in 2000. The film features a stunning soundtrack by Grammy Award-winning musician Wyclef Jean.

Tickets are $25 and are available in advance at www.coolidge.org or at the Coolidge Corner Theatre box office, 290 Harvard Street, Brookline. For a full listing of this year’s Coolidge Award events honoring Jonathan Demme, visit www.coolidge.org/awardnews.
