Build It Better: Two Films By Raoul Peck

MUBI Special

You’re probably familiar with the name of Raoul Peck after the remarkable and deserved success of I Am Not Your Negro. But the Haitian director (and former Minister of Culture!) has been making films for three decades now! We’re proud to present this extraordinary diptych tackling the post-earthquake reconstruction process of his home country—both through a documentary and a fiction lens, in a superb exercise in storytelling—rendering visible at once the inefficiency of the international organisations and governments, and the resilience of Haitians to overcome tragedy.

Murder in Pacot

Raoul Peck Haiti, 2014

Peck’s storytelling dexterity becomes apparent with this companion piece to Fatal Assistance—a fiction film delving into the same subject, boasting equal critical sharpness and political urge, through a radically different narrative language. Co-written with legendary French scribe Pascal Bonitzer.

Fatal Assistance

Raoul Peck France, 2013

You may be familiar with Peck after the remarkable success of I Am Not Your Negro. But the Haitian director has been making films for three decades now! We’re proud to present a diptych tackling the post-catastrophe reconstruction of his country, starting with this enlightening, implacable exposé.
