Where to watch

Movie Info

In this documentary we follow Pras Michel, Grammy award-winning rapper and founder of the hip-hop group, The Fugees, as he returns to his homeland of Haiti post-earthquake and finds a corrupt government in paralysis. With no experience or money, Pras passionately mobilizes a presidential campaign for the unlikeliest of candidates: Michel Martelly, aka "Sweet Micky", Haiti's most popular and most outlandish pop star. The idealistic and politically inexperienced pair set out against a corrupt government, civil unrest, and a fixed election system to change the course of Haitian history.

Critic Reviews for Sweet Micky For President

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (2)

  • It's a friendly and shallow look at the ascendance of a pop-star-turned-politician whose presidency, now more than four years along, has hardly been a panacea.

  • The energy never falters as the film jumps from talking-head testimonies to on-the-streets footage of rallies and riots.

    Nov 17, 2015 | Full Review…
  • "Sweet Micky for President" shows Mantell's steep learning-curve about political realities as well as his growing sense of confidence and commitment. It's inspiring.

    Nov 13, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • With Préval accused of voting fraud to ensure Célestin's victory, there's no shortage of political intrigue even with the outcome a foregone conclusion.

    Nov 12, 2015 | Full Review…
  • A somewhat insightful if not one-sided look into the election of Michel Martelly.

    Feb 24, 2016 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • Humorous doc about Haiti's hilarious Presidential race in which former Fugee Wyclef Jean actually lost to a former drag queen known as Sweet Micky.
