Monsieur Le President

D: Victoria Campbell | USA | 72 min | Regional Premiere

Filmed over three years in the aftermath of the 2010 Haitian earthquake, Monsieur le Président follows the ascension and confusing downfall of Gaston Jean Edy. The American filmmaker enters Haiti just days after the earthquake with a camera and a small valise of medical supplies. There she meets Gaston, a well-beloved voodoo priest in the Christ-Roi section of Port-au-Prince, who, with nothing but hustle and hope, revives a defunct neighborhood clinic

and staffs it with a doctor and nurses. Gaston is a neighborhood hero, and the filmmaker works closely with him, but as their friendship grows, the story takes a sinister turn. No one is a hero. Nothing is what it seems.
