The Trouble With Aid (2012)

Directed by: Ricardo Pollack

From the Biafran conflict, the crisis in Cambodia, through the Ethiopian famine, the genocide in Rwanda, to the military intervention in Somalia, Kosovo, and Afghanistan, Ricardo Pollack raises the question whether humanitarianism can sometimes do more good than harm. The documentary shows through several testimonies of key humanitarian players and scholars, such as Hugo Slim, Antonio Donini, the unintended consequences of aid.
