Sweet Micky for President Trailer (2015)
Trailer for Sweet Micky for President which will be screening at the Hot Docs Film Festival.
The Haitian presidential election that followed the devastating 2010 earthquake seemed more like a battle of the bands than a race for president. As controversial musician Michel Martelly, aka Sweet Micky, throws his name into the race, Haitian ex-Fugees member Pras Michel returns to the country to support Martelly’s campaign. Together they transform Martelly’s sometimes scandalous image into that of a savvy politician and—with little to no political experience—go head to head with a corrupt government, civil unrest and a fixed election. And just when things seem like they could not get any worse, Pras’s former bandmate Wyclef Jean also enters the presidential race, making a win for Martelly seem next to impossible. Winner of both the Audience and Jury Prizes for Best Documentary at the Slamdance Film Festival, Sweet Micky for President captures a perfect storm of political maelstrom and unsettled scores as this dramatic race comes to a finish.
