On Monday evening, Pulitzer Center-sponsored journalists showed their short documentaries at the Human Rights Film Festival at Georgetown Law Center. Afterward, the journalists discussed their work and took questions from the audience.
Carmen Russell, who worked on a report about Haiti's slave children, also known as Restaveks, said the following in reference to his film:
When these families that are taking care of [the Restaveks] can't afford to take care of them, can't afford to feed them, I have no doubt they are ending up out on the street, and I'm sure that's what's happening overwhelmingly post-earthquake now.
