Raoul Peck


Haitian filmmaker and former minister of culture RAOUL PECK’s lauded feature films and documentaries explore internationalist themes of inequality, and offer compelling depictions of Haiti under political duress. His film The Man by the Shore (1993) was the first Haitian film ever released in the United States. In 2001, he received the Human Rights Watch Lifetime Achievement Award. Currently the director in France of FEMIS, Peck’s most recent film is Fatal Assistance, a critique of the international aid in Haiti and elsewhere. Peck lives in Paris and Haiti.
