Film Society Shows Jonathan Demme’s “The Agronomist”


The St. John Film Society will show “The Agronomist” (90 min. 2003) at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 18, at The Marketplace in Cruz Bay in the 3rd floor Courtyard. It is about the late Haitian radio broadcaster, Jean Léopold Dominique. In this important documentary by director Jonathan Demme, Dominique is remembered as a human rights activist, freedom fighter and national hero. Today, almost 10 years after his still-unsolved assassination, Dominique continues to inspire the battle for liberty and democracy in Haiti. The film is free. Come early for better seating. Bring a seat cushion for comfort.
