Meurtre à Pacot

Raoul Peck Haiti, 2014

Dean Owen Jones's rating of the film Murder in Pacot

Thought-provoking study life of continuing to subsist in the post natural-disaster world. Large events like this usually don't make sense to those who survive them, and the return to a kind of half-normality, half NGO-dominated/dependent existence is painful for each of the characters in different ways, leading them to also adjust and cope in different ways. Interesting. Great, understated performances too.
