Miami’s Little Haiti Cultural Center presents the IDB documentary “Water Everlasting?”

What will it take to keep water flowing in Haiti? Who pays the bills? How can the Haitians take charge?


In 2014, the Inter-American Development Bank explored those very questions in its documentary “Water Everlasting? The battle to secure Haiti’s most essential resource”.

The film is a 25-minute window into the challenges of turning around the public water service in Port-au-Prince. It is also a tool for dialogue with academics, aid workers, and the Haitian community, which is why Miami’s Little Haiti Cultural Center will host a screening, panel discussion and reception for the film on Thursday, October 30th, at 6:30 p.m.

Following the screening, Miami Herald Caribbean Correspondent Jacqueline Charles will moderate the panel discussion with Haitian-American community development consultant Leonie Hermantin; Agustin Filippo, the IDB’s lead specialist for Haiti operations; Corinne Cathala, a senior specialist in the IDB’s Water and Sanitation Division; and David R. Adams, the vice president of international missions for Cross International and the former director of USAID in Haiti.

The event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP by emailing

For press inquiries, please contact the IDB’s Office of External Relations: Julienne Gage,, 202-412-1273 or Anna Cabral,, 202-623-3454.
