The film documents the eye-witness testimonies of survivors of heavily militarised UN peacekeeping operations in Cité Soleil in 2005. Survivors say that fire came from helicopters and penetrated the roofs of their corrugated iron dwellings. Children were amongst the fatalities. To date, there has been no independent or transparent investigation into the scores of deaths, injuries and demolitions. Following the screening of It Stays With You: Use of Force by UN Peacekeepers in Haiti join us for a panel discussion with film director Professor Siobhán Wills.
