Item description for Perejil (Coleccion Barbaros) by Rene Philoctete & Mireia Porta...

In October 1937, Dominican General Trujillo attempts to ethnically cleanse his provinces by brutally killing the black Haitians living there. In the small town Elas Pia, mulattos, blacks, and whites all speak their own racially mixed tongue of Spanish and French. When Trujillo decides to use correct pronunciation of the word "perejil" (Spanish for parsley) as a litmus test for his slaughter, mulatto Dominican Pedro must teach Adle, his black Haitian lover, to wrap her tongue around the fatal word.
Octubre de 1937, Trujillo, el jefe, caudillo y generalsimo dominicano, obsesionado por "blanquear" sus dominios, ha dado una sorprendente consigna: quien no sepa pronunciar en perfecto espaol la palabra "perejil" perder la cabeza. Pero en Elas Pia mulatos, negros, y blancos hablan su propia lengua mestiza de espaol y francs. El mulato dominicano Pedro y la negra haitiana Adle viven all en la plenitud de su amor y Pedro intenta ensear a Adle a pronunciar correctamente esa palabra fatal.
