Abstract

This article discusses the making of the film It Stays With You: Use of Force by UN Peacekeepers in Haiti (50 minutes 2018) - which was produced using participatory practices - and the project team’s use of the film to raise awareness of the need for reform of UN rules of engagement (ROE) and for an investigation into excessive use of force by the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) during the political transition years following the 2004 coup against former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, especially the years 2005, 2006 and 2007. The article also discusses the use of the film to challenge the exclusion, from the MINUSTAH success story narrative, of the stories of loss and grief of the people who live in the targeted community and to provide a platform to enable the experiences of survivors to be publicly acknowledged internationally.
