    Raoul Peck will be at the Film Society of Lincoln Center on Wednesday, June 19 and at the  IFC Film Center on Thursday, June 20 to present the U.S. premiere of his new documentary Fatal Assistance.

    Peck is an award-winning Haitian-born filmmaker, and in Fatal Assistance he leads us through the two-year process of colossal rebuilding efforts in post-earthquake Haiti. The film dives headfirst into the complexity of the reconstruction process and the impact of global humanitarian aid, revealing the disturbing extent to which these aid efforts were a failure. Through this film the viewer learns that a large portion of the money pledged to Haiti was never actually received, and the grand plans for  reconstruction largely failed to materialize.

  • Raoul Peck’s Fatal Assistance at the French Film Festival in Richmond

    March 1, 2013

    In the wake of the January 2010 earthquake in Port-au-Prince, the international community came together and billions of dollars were pledged to help recovery efforts. The cast of those willing to come to the aid of the devastated city included former US president Bill Clinton and numerous Hollywood stars. But two and a half years later, hundreds of thousands in Haiti’s capital are still living in tents, the organizations that pledged their help are defunct, and a mere fraction of the funds have arrived. The media remains focused on the efforts made by foreign sources while refusing to show the work that Hatians are putting into rebuilding their own country.

    Haitian filmmaker Raoul Peck spent two years documenting the failure of the international community to meet the needs of those affected by the earthquake. Fatal Assistance shows multiple humanitarian organizations working on the same project, infighting among NGOs, and new hospitals being built next to existing ones instead of where they are needed.
