What Can I Do?: Film Premier

A film and happening inspired by the earthquake in Haiti.  What Can I Do? uses magical realism to explore themes of power, responsibility, and the ever-shrinking size of our planet. 

The evening will include the film premier, Q&A with the director, and town hall forum-style conversation with the audience. Reception with food and music to follow. 

Elizabeth Richardson is a senior and Centennial Scholar at Barnard College. She directed What Can I Do? and co-founded Certain Trumpets in response to her experiences studying in the Dominican Republic and working periodically in Haiti post-earthquake.
