Raoul Peck x 2
Haitian director Raoul Peck has for decades now been an unparalleled moral and political force in film culture, winning international acclaim for his 2000 historical fiction Lumumba, and managing to bottle all the rage of the present moment in the incendiary word of mouth phenomenon I Am Not Your Negro (2016), a stirring, uncompromising found footage collage set to a reading of James Baldwin’s unfinished manuscript Remember This House. Still working fearlessly and now with a higher profile than ever before, Peck is at the very height of his powers.
Special thanks to Marc Moreno, Velvet Film, and Michelle Materre.
