This is the story of the military coup d’etat in Madagascar in 2009 that landed the democratically elected president, Marc Ravalomanana, in exile in South Africa. With unique access to President Ravalomanana and his advisors, 'Return of a President' tells the unusual inside story about political intrigue and power play, in which France, the former colonial power, seemingly wants to prevent the president

from returning home to reinstall democracy in Madagascar.

Through December 2017 the documentary have been available for worldwide streaming in an exclusive sneak preview, and during 2018, the film will have its general release in selected territories on TV and VoD. Throughout this period it will also be possible to arrange screenings and events in cinemas. Please go to our 'host a screening' page if you wish to set up a screening. We look forward to continue sharing this important story in Madagascar and around the world in 2018. For more information about where and how to watch the film, follow the news  section here, and we will also update you with release-related news on our official Facebook-page.
