Raoul Peck

Peck’s films Lumumba and Sometimes in April are penetrating dramas set against momentous recent historical events, yet it’s also his eye and ear for detail in ordinary, everyday life that reveals the deeper forces governing our fate. From the émigré’s determination to confront his torturer in Brooklyn, NY in Haitian Corner, to the child’s-eye-view of the horrors of Papa Doc’s Haiti in Man by the Shore, to the dark secrets and sexual intrigue of a wealthy couple as they struggle for survival amid Haiti’s ruins in Murder in Pacot (inspired by Pasolini’s Theorem), this ability to portray epic encounters while knitting the personal with the political has made Peck the acclaimed director he is today.
