Inside Disaster Haiti
Within 48 hours of a major natural disaster, the Red Cross Field Assessment and Coordination Team (FACT) is on the ground. Inside Disaster follows the stories of both humanitarian workers and aid recipients in a life and death drama that plays like a fiction, but is all too real. Our camera crews will document the fieldwork of each FACT specialist as they assess damage and coordinate the supply of life-saving water, healthcare, shelter, and food. The obstacles they face are varied and constantly changing. With our unprecedented access to FACT, Inside Disaster will deliver powerful and gripping stories, told by fascinating characters caught up in a high-stakes drama.

AWARDS AND FESTIVALS
"...more in-depth analysis and context than most TV news reports are offering now."
National Post (Ampersand Blog)
"...thoughtful documentary coverage has surfaced..."
"The Inside Disaster crew will be there in Haiti long after most of the news cameras are gone - an important fact because it lets the team tell the whole story of the Red Cross relief work, and a more complete nuanced story of Haiti and its people as the re-build from the earthquake."
