The unbelievable true story of how the largest pop star in Haiti became its president is the subject of the inspirational and entertaining documentary, Sweet Mickey for President.
Music and politics collide when international music star, Pras Michel of the Fugees, returns to his homeland of Haiti following the devastating earthquake of 2010 to mobilize a presidential campaign for Haiti’s most controversial musician: Michel Martelly aka Sweet Micky.
The politically inexperienced pair set out against a corrupted government, civil unrest, and a fixed election. When Pras’s former bandmate, superstar Wyclef Jean, also enters the presidential race, their chances seem further doomed. But with the help of a few friends, including Ben Stiller and former president Bill Clinton, they never give up on their honest dream of changing the course of Haiti’s future forever.
Sweet Mickey for President opens in theaters on November 13, 2015. Check out the trailer below:
