Quotes

Peasant Leader: [prior to pouring the assassinated Jean Dominique's ashes into a farming community's river] "We peasants, from all corners of this country, will not give up this fight. The same way Jean stood with us, Jean has trusted us with his body, his ashes, to be joined with the waters and soil of the Artibonite River. Jean always said you can take the body, burn the body, but the spirit... you devils! the spirit... you criminals! the spirit... you assassins! lives on in our minds."

Death is not a defeat
11 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

He gave voice to the masses at a point in history when silence was the status quo and personified integrity where corruption has been the norm for so long. I did not know him personally, but I am one of so many touched by his courage and saddened by his untimely departure from this earth. This documentary is a must see masterpiece that depicts Jean Do for what he really was: "a true Haitian Hero and a giant among men". It is cinematographic poetry from the mind of a genius about a man of a rare specimen that nature produces a few of. When taking into account the current situation in the island, one cannot help wondering whether Jean Dominique was the last of an endangered specie. Death is not a defeat but a guarantee to immortality to the righteous.
