NEWARK, USA (defend.ht) - Pras Michel of The Fugees is expected to release a movie this fall on the history and road to the presidency of Michel "Sweet Micky" Martelly.
In an article in VIBE magazine, the documentary entitled, Sweet Micky For Prezidan is narrated by Pras who will take viewers through Martellyâ€™s journey from an unlikely candidate to the eventual victor and President of the Republic. The documentary also will touch on the struggles of Haiti as it tries to rebuild.
Pras said of the documentary:
The documentary is about the scope of Michel Martelly, who was sworn to come in as the president elected of Haiti. Heâ€™s a friend and musician, who I helped to get the election. I suggested to him that he should run for president. The documentary is about that, but also a country that has been so devastated for over a hundred years, but it still has a splendor of culture and history being the first Black republic ever in mankind. Yet it still couldnâ€™t find its independence, economics or stability in the world. The irony is, it took a musician, who under normal circumstances wouldnâ€™t have been able to run or been taken seriously. But, as the documentary focuses on the election, it also gives you a history and perspective on Haiti. Itâ€™s like hybrid history of Haiti through the eyes of the election.
