CITIZEN PENN

ART OF IMPACT

US 2020, 93 min Director DON HARDY
On January 12, 2010, a 7.0 earthquake devastated Haiti and changed millions of lives. International aid workers descended on Haiti to help in any way they could. One of those people driven to help was American actor and filmmaker Sean Penn. Citizen Penn chronicles the moment Penn and his team of volunteers landed in Haiti just days after the earthquake and the decade since. This documentary delivers unparalleled access to one of America’s most polarizing figures and offers audiences an intimate, honest, and self-reflective look into the triumphs and challenges of a man who decided to do something. He got involved in a way few activists ever will. Viewers can decide for themselves whether Haiti is better off for it.
