Notes from a small island
A weblog by Jonathan Ali

Although her husband is the center of the film, she is in the most riveting scene. One month after the assassination she returns to the air, delivering a statement that blends tropical magic realism with defiance worthy of the French Resistance. Jean Dominique, she explained, never died, thanks to a magic spell that rendered him invisible to his would-be killers.

"Yes," she said, her face a portrait of love and resolve. "Jean Léopold Dominique, free man, citizen of this torn land, is alive. Good morning, Jean."

-- From an article in today's New York Times about the Jonathan Demme film The Agronomist, about the late Haitian journalist Jean Léopold Dominique.
