Helen Whitney is an award-winning documentary filmmaker and educator. Her new film "Forgiveness- A Time to Love and a Time to Hate, Part 1," is an epic tale that explores the varied emotions and dimensions of forgiveness. When and how do you apply forgiveness? Is it an act of healing or can it be dangerous? Is there a boundary for forgiveness? Are there some acts that are just unforgivable? Join us for this special screening before it airs on PBS.

"Angels of Milot"
Bernardo Santana III, Director/Editor
January 12, 2010………. A 7.0 magnitude earthquake strikes Haiti.
Over 300,000 killed and an estimated 50,000 severely maimed with crushing injuries to their limbs. The plight of the Haitian people - some of the poorest, least healthy and most disadvantaged on earth – immediately goes from bad to worse. Unfathomable. Unimaginable. Unbelievable. There is no plan to handle the medical implications of the worst earthquake in this region in more than 200 years.
Hopital Sacre Couer (Hospital Sacred Heart) at only 73 beds is the largest private hospital in northern Haiti, located in the small village of Milot. Established over 20 years ago, Hopital Sacre Couer is an exemplary partnership between the American aid group, Crudem Foundation, and the local community it serves. It’s mission? To provide the best possible healthcare for the people of Haiti.
How does a hospital with only three full time doctors, two operating rooms and a delivery room prepare to handle a tragedy of this scale?
