"Serpent and the Rainbow"?

"Dennis Allan is an scientist who visits Haiti on the strength of a rumour of a drug which renders the recepient totally paralyzed but conscious. The drug's effects often fool doctors, who declare the victims dead. Could this be the origin of the "zombie" legend? Alan embarks on a surprising and often surreal investigation of the turbulent social chaos that is Haiti during the revolution which ousted hated dictator Papa Doc. Often a pawn in a greater game, Alan must decide what is science, what is superstition, and what is the unknown in a anarchistic society where police corruption and witch-doctory are commonplace."

I just had a patron call me about finding a film/video on Haitian politics and religion. He had heard about it on the radio. Problem is he only remembers part of the title: ""blank" and the Rainbow". Surely someone out there can help me....
