Baseball In the Time of (U.N.-Triggered) Cholera

by
Abby Zimet

A powerful new documentary about the scandal and tragedy of Haiti's post-earthquake cholera outbreak, seen through the eyes of a young baseball player. With the epidemic eventually traced to UN peacekeepers from Nepal, the filmmakers wanted both to shame the U.N. into taking responsibility for the first cholera outbreak to hit Haiti in a century, and to celebrate the resilience of Haitians in the face of it. Sign the undeny.org petition to the U.N.
