Peacekeepers Doc Follows Female Muslim Police Officers In Haiti

A Journey Of A Thousand Miles: Peacekeepers

A Journey Of A Thousand Miles: Peacekeepers

One of the most fascinating documentaries that aired at TIFF this year was A Journey Of A Thousand Miles: Peacekeepers, a film that followed three female Muslim police officers from Bangladesh as they did a year-long tour of duty on a United Nations peacekeeping mission in Haiti.

I spoke to director Geeta Gandbhir, executive producer Irfan Izhar and RCMP Sgt. J.J. Hainey about the ways in which these women defied preconceptions and performed their duties during their tour.

Read the full interview with them over at Samaritan Mag.

Arcade Fire, K’naan Played A Charity Show In Toronto For Eric The Vampire

Arcade Fire

Arcade Fire

To coincide with TIFF 2012 the Arcade Fire, K’naan, Raine Maida and Chantal Kreviazuk performed at a fancy charity show to help Haiti put on by a group called Artists For Peace And Justice.

The party was filled with A-listers like Jude Law and Eric the vampire (Alexander Skarsgard).

Sarah was there. And when she wasn’t somehow constantly running afoul of Paul Haggis (dude, you’re not that important) she managed to write about it for Spinner.
