Made shortly after the 1987 overthrow of the Duvalier regime, this film is a platform for Haitian people to express dreams and concerns for the country's future and comment on its tumultuous present through popular culture. Director Jonathan Demme creates an impressionistic report that authentically encapsulates the opinions, aspirations, and fashions of the time.
Jonathan Demme, 1988. 52 min.
