Wyclef Jean Plan's First Haiti Earthquake Movie

Singer Wyclef Jean

Singer Wyclef Jean wants to compile footage he shot of the horror in Haiti into a hard-hitting movie so that the world will understand the earthquake relief effort.

The former American hip-hop group Fugees star, fears the international media covering the catastrophe and its aftermath is turning away from the worst scenes and giving TV viewers the impression that the relief effort has been a huge success.

The "Gone Till November" singer is grateful for all the aid sent to his homeland, but insists Haitians have a long struggle ahead and thinks footage he and his entourage shot of dead bodies left to decay on the streets will compel Americans, in particular, to keep helping after the TV crews pack up and go home.

"You're seeing a snapshot. What I did when I went down there, I went with a cam, and what I want to do is, in the next two to three weeks, I wanna release a film through the eyes of Wyclef Jean so you understand what's going on first hand" said Jean.

"I think American people should understand the urgency of giving. There are certain things you can't show on the news, and I urge people to just look at this film and see how you wanna get involved.”
