Overview

This unusual documentary examines the political and spiritual facets of Haitian culture in the post-Duvalier era. A voodoo priest explains the difference between white and black magic. Haitians talking of escaping the government oppression realize their lives could be endangered, and film footage shows boat people being washed up on the coast of Florida. The cameras go to Fort Dimanche prison, called by many human rights advocates as the worst in the world. Corpses of victims and the living dead who will soon join them provide a harrowing scene that mirror a country filled with corruption, violence, and voodoo.
