Haiti - Kuppet - Faldet - Katastrofen by Jørgen Leth

Third release of the same material under a different title to make a profit on Haitian earthquake

Rating 5 out of 10

This is the publishing house Information's attempt to make a profit on the large earthquake on Haiti in early 2010. But the cover of the book is very misdirecting, because there is virtually no material about the earthquake! Around 2/3 of the material has been published before by the same publishing house under different titles. So this release of the material is the not only the 2. time, but the 3. time release of the same material under 3 different titles! Reading the first part of Jørgen's writings one senses behind "The Comedians" by Graham Greene.
