Haiti refugee camps - Sprawl with Arcade Fire

An incredible trailer for a forthcoming film called 'The Country Club' featuring superimposed images of the refugee camps and stores in Haiti over Google Earth maps of the area set to Arcade Fire's haunting track Sprawl (Flatland)...
the only golf course in Haiti has become an impromptu home to tens of thousands living beneath tarps due to a devastating earthquake. Out of the estimated half-million left homeless, this short documentary follows one 12-year old boy struggling to find hope despite heavy rains, instability, and a future unknown.
