“An outstanding analytical documentary…laid out with impressive clarity… organized with the utmost intelligence…fascinating newsreel footage…convincing.” – Variety
“Thoughtful” – The Village Voice
“Cogently argued…The complex human exploitation involved is made so vivid that the film becomes an especially instructive case history of U.S. – Third World relations.” – Library Journal
“Powerful” – British Film Institute
„Six years in the making and filmed clandestinely under the Duvalier dictatorship, Bitter Cane is a timeless documentary classic about the exploitation and foreign domination of the Haitian people.
From peasant coffee farms in the rugged tropical mountains to steamy U.S. – owned sweatshops in the teeming capital, the film takes the viewer on a journey through Haitian history to a deeper understanding of that country’s political economy.
We see emerging paths of flight – industries from the U.S., refugees from Haiti – which are having profound effects on both societies.” –
