Jacques Stephen Alexis, Dead without a Burial Site

2015/DVD/95 min French and Creole with subtitles in English and Spanish.
Jacques Stephen Alexis is certainly one of the most prominent writers of Haiti and the Caribbean. Coming  back to Haiti in 1961 after a long journey abroad, the author of "General Sun, My Brother" and "In the Blink of an Eyelid" is kidnapped on François Duvalier's orders and has been missing since then as well as 4 of his companions. This film shows the efforts to find records and decipher the mystery of his disappearance. At the same time, it makes us discover the revolutionary, the thinker, the man of science, the loving father and the great writer.
