Denmark / USA, 2006 (MIFF 2007, Documentaries)
Director: Asger Leth
“There has never been anything quite like Asger Leth's film; it's amazing it even exists and that the director is still alive.” - VarietyIt is 2004. The Haitian slum of Cité Soleil is the most dangerous place on earth. Lawlessness, poverty and despair fuel the only currency that matters - violence. The lords of this hell are the chimères (or ghosts), the secret army of then President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. “When you conjure up your worst nightmare image of an amoral, doped-up, gun-waving gangster who couldn't care less if you live or die, you've got the guys who are front-and-center in this movie,” says Variety.Blood brothers Bily and 2pac are two such men. This documentary is their story. The result is a brazenly intimate document of fierce love, even fiercer hatred and perversely far-flung dreams.
