This is the presentation of the movie Sweet Micky For President by Slamdance Film Festival
Documentary tracks Martelly's Rise to Power
"Sweet Mickey for President" held its World Premiere at the Slamdance Film Festival in January. The documentary traces the journey of President Martelly from Konpa superstardom to the highest office in the land.
The film provides an overview of 100 years of Haitian political upheaval during which the country endured 32 coup d'etats.
Martelly ran against Fugee musician Wyclef Jean and won despite his inexperience. Today he is ruling by decree until Parliament is functional once again.
