"Good Fortune" and Aid in Africa

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

Director Landon Van Soest and producer/editor Jeremy Levine discuss their film “Good Fortune,” a look at how massive international efforts to address poverty in Africa may be undermining the communities they aim to benefit. The film tells the stories of two Kenyans fighting to save their homes from large-scale development, and shows the effects of foreign aid on those it means to help. 

“Good Fortune” airs July 13 on PBS, part of the series POV.
