Monsieur le Président

Saturday March 16, 10:00am Chilmark School

Director and Martha’s Vineyard resident Victoria Campbell in attendance

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. American filmmaker Victoria Campbell enters Haiti just days after the earthquake, with a camera and a small valise of medical supplies. There she meets Gaston, a beloved voodoo priest who, with nothing but hustle and hope, revives a defunct clinic and staffs it with a doctor and nurses. Gaston is celebrated in the neighborhood, but then the story takes a sinister turn. No one is a hero. Nothing is what it seems.Matinee Pricing!
