Sweet Micky For President
As Onslot Film’s debut feature-length documentary, directed and produced by Onslot founder Ben Patterson, “Sweet Micky for President” is a project of which we are especially proud. “Sweet Micky for President” follows 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. Also featured are Wyclef Jean, Bill Clinton, Sean Penn and Ben Stiller.
“Sweet Micky for President” is the winner of 2015 Slamdance’s Jury Prize for Documentary and the Audience Award. Press includes: Hollywood Reporter, Robertebert.com, Indiewire, Billboard and FilmPulse.
