Buy: Philippe Niang's 'Toussaint Louverture' (DVD)

Trailer to director Philippe Niang's Toussaint Louverture, staring Haitian actor Jimmy Jean-Louis available no DVD at Amazon.

The 180-minute biopic of the famed Haitian revolutionist had its American premiere in February at the 2012 Pan African Film Festival (PAFF). Lead actor Jimmy Jean-Louis spoke with S&A that same month about the project.

Haitian Jean-Louis stars as the title character, and he's joined by French actresses Aïssa Maïga (Paris, Je T'Aime, Bamako) as Toussaint's wife, Suzanne, and Sonia Rolland (Moloch Tropical, Midnight In Paris) as Marie-Eugénie Sonthonax, wife of abolitionist L.F. Sonthonax.
