Death of the poet Alain Philoctète
"The National Book Directorate learns with great pain the news of the death of the Haitian poet, designer and activist Alain Philoctète, at the age of 56 (born July 19, 1963). Author of the poem 'Légende de mon Royaume' in 1998, Alain Philoctète is the son of the poet René Philoctète. At the beginning of this year, documentary filmmaker Will Prosper released an 83-minute documentary : 'Kenbe la : Until victory', which recounts Alain Philoctète's fights and his trip to Haiti as part of his permaculture project. In this painful circumstance, the General Directorate sends its sympathies to his wife, the Philoctète family, his friends, in particular the director Will Prosper whom he rubbed shoulders with for several years, and to the poetry community both in Haiti and in Quebec where he had settled for about 16 years."
