JACQUES ROUMAIN: The Passion for a Country

 2008/DVD/Color/111 minutes in French and Haitian Creole, subtitled in English and Spanish
This full length docu-drama allows us to discover the tormented life of Haiti's most famous writer and one of his most renowned political figures. The burning topicality of the issues that he put forward a century ago is astonishing. This film is at the same time a fresco of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th. WINNER Paul Robeson Award FESPACO 2009
