“Duvalier: Pere et Fils” is a compilation of interviews, short documentaries and reports about Haitian presidents, Francois “Papa Doc” Duvalier and his son Jean Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier.

“Krik? Krak! Tales of a Nightmare” is the story of the misery of Haiti under two generations of Duvaliers: Political repression and popular rebellion, poverty and voodoo, violence and religious devotion. Documents of daily life, including an interview with Papa Doc Duvalier himself, combine with scenes from fiction films to depict what a conventional documentary cannot: The shifts between levels of reality in Haitian life.
