About the Filmmaker

Kevin Pina is a U.S journalist and filmmaker. He is known primarily for his coverage of the human rights abuses and suppression of democracy in Haiti following the overthrow of Jean Bertrand Aristide and the installation of the interim government. Since these subjects receive little or no play in the corporate controlled media, Pina most often writes articles for, and gives interviews to the alternative media.

In addition to his original film about the formation of Aristide's Lavalas political movement entitled "Haiti: Harvest of Hope", he released a second video entitled "Haiti: The UNtold Story." It has been described by critics as "53 minutes of human rights hell in Haiti." The film chronicles human rights abuses by the Haitian police and the July 6, 2005 massacre by United Nations forces of unarmed civilians in the pro-Aristide neighborhood of Cite Soleil.

Pina's definitive works include a series of articles in the Black Commentator ( about the build-up to the ouster of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. Beginning with "Is the US Funding Haitian Contras?" in April 2003, Pina chronicles the forced ouster of Aristide and the players behind the scenes.

Pina's film credits include "El Salvador: In the Name of Democracy" (1985), "Berkeley in the Sixties" (1990), "Amazonia: Voices from the Rainforest" (1990), "Haiti: Harvest of Hope" (1997), and "Haiti: The UNtold Story" (2005).

Mr. Pina is also the Haiti Special Correspondent for the Flashpoints radio program on the Pacifica Network's flagship station KPFA in Berkeley CA.
