Author Amy Wilentz attends a Q&A for fans at Books and Books in Coral Gables, Florida where she is signing copies of her new book 'Farewell, Fred Voodoo'. She talks about the Haitian president and former musician Michel Martelly known by most as Sweet Mickey.
Asked why Mickey appeals so much to the Haitians, she responds that people are in need of 'law and order' since the death of former president François Duvalier. 'I can understand their feeling', she says. 'You want security in the streets, you want someone tough - I know, Mickey has worn a diaper in public and dresses in public when he was still a rock star, but he seems kind of tough I would say, I met him.'
Take a look back at October's inaugural event.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
