The only thing predictable about life is its unpredictability.
This morning the news of the late actor/comedian Johnny Fleurinord aka TONTON NORD has ravished my entire existence for a moment and quickly came to realize that we work, save, and plan for the future.
Is there really a future if tomorrow is not certain, if we are mortal?
As a new filmmaker in this awesome industry, I respect and honor all those who were here before me and encourage many to join us to make the Haitian cinema better and stronger as TONTON NORD was doing.
The world is always unkind to new talents, new creations.
But Johnny Fleurinord came and embraced our cinematic world and added a new flavor to it: TONTON NORD. Although there are many of its kind but his character was bold, funny and unique.
It is difficult to imagine more humble foundation than what Johnny had gave us but simply he had thought us that not everyone can become a great artist but a great artist can come from anywhere.
I never had a chance to meet him in person but his works had rocked me to the core. I learned through him that it is each of us who needs to help all of us for the advancement of movie industry.
I present to his family and friends my dearest and utmost sympathy.
May God guide and protect you in this moment of loss and sorrow.
Know that he lives forever because he lives in us.
