Synopsis

As owner and operator of his nation's oldest and only free radio station, Haitian journalist/freedom fighter Jean Dominique was frequently at odds with his country's various repressive governments and spent much of the '80s and early '90s in exile in New York, where Academy-Award winning filmmaker Jonathan Demme interviewed him over the years.

Dominique fought tirelessly against his country's overwhelming injustice, oppression, and poverty but it was Dominique's shocking and still-unsolved assassination in April of 2000 that gave the director the impetus to assemble more than a decade's worth of material into a celebration of this dynamic man and his legacy.
