Agronomist R2 (Uk Import) -
Releasedatum: 28 juni 2004
From Academy-Award winning filmmaker Jonathan Demme, THE AGRONOMIST tells the story of Haitian national hero, journalist, and freedom fighter Jean Dominique, whom Demme first met and filmed in 1986. As owner and operator of his nation's oldest and only free radio station, Dominique was frequently at odds with his country's various repressive governments and spent much of the 80's and early 90's in exile in New York, where Demme continued to interview 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. THE AGRONOMIST, a portrait of a remarkable man, his extraordinary wife, and their beloved nation, represents a labor of love for Demme and is his return to the non-fiction arena, joining an extensive body of documentaries that includes STOP MAKING SENSE, SWIMMING TO CAMBODIA, COUSIN BOBBY, and HAITI: DREAMS OF DEMOCRACY.
