Director: Michael Blackstad
Reports of revolution and threats of invasion have come once again from the black republic of Haiti. This teeming land of voodoo lives under the lash of its spiritual leader and president for life, Doctor Francois Duvalier, the much feared "Papa Doc". Normally remote and inaccessible, Papa Doc received Alan Whicker in his palace, drove him around Port au Prince in his bullet proof Mercedes, talked to him about The Comedians', his power, his reaction to the bombing of his palace by Haitian exiles, and his own threatened assassination.
