Hole in the Bucket: Poverty in Togo

program date: 
Tue, 07/08/2008

Part 1 of 2 

Interview with Jean-Pierre Dessou about poverty and homelessness in Togo, West Africa, and an interview with Brian Lindstrom, documentary film maker working on Alien Boy, a film telling the story of Jim Chasse, focusing on his last day, when Portland police stomped him. They believed he was a drug dealer when he was a person dealing with schizophrenia who in his earlier life had been a musician of local note.  Interesting juxtaposition of the lack of social stigma of poverty in Togo and the police beating of Jim instigated in large part by his appearance. Togo knows community. Portland's police don't.
