The Official Movie Trailer for ‘Toussaint Louverture”

Here is the official trailer for Philippe Niang’s “Toussaint L’Ouverture” film which stars Jimmy Jean-Louis, Aïssa Maïga and Sonia Rolland.

The movie is a historical action epic based on the life of Toussaint Louverture, who led a successful slave rebellion in the 18th century that sparked the Haitian Revolution.

Actor Jimmy Jean-Louis stars as the title character in what will be a 2-part TV-movie, 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. Expected to air on the French network sometime in 2012, no specific date has been given yet, nor whether we can expect the film to travel. – via indiewire
