      1.  "Extinction in Progress" This documentary explores the biodiversity under threat of extinction in Haiti's remaining forests. Free on YouTube.

      2.  "Death by a Thousand Cuts" This award winning film, including the 2017 Grand Jury Prize at the Environmental Film Festival at Yale, investigates the issues of deforestation threatening fragile ecosystems and the illegal wood charcoal trade on the tense border between the Dominican Republic and Haiti.
