CITIZEN PENN

CITIZEN PENN

2020 (USA) 93 minutes
Directed by: Don Hardy

Over the past decade, much of Sean Penn’s energy has gone into supporting the people of Haiti after the devastating earthquake of 2010, which claimed a quarter of a million lives and displaced many more. Penn arrived with a small team of volunteers and urgently needed supplies. Penn opted to stay on the island for months, taking over leadership of the largest refugee camp when the US military left. The film is a vivid account of first-person activism, life and death in a disaster zone, and one man’s dedication to direct action.
