featuring original music by haiti’s own wyclef jean, this documentary follows the life and career of jean dominique against the backdrop of political turmoil in haiti. it’s varying degrees of informative, inspiring and moving; and also well-edited. directed by jonathan demme, who has a range of quality films and documentaries under his belt now, it’s not the story you’re likely to hear, see, or read about unless you are thorough and have good sources. that said, dominique is a figure worthy of a documentary – not just because of his influence and importance, though. he is also a unique and dynamic character which makes him naturally compelling on film.
