Raoul Peck Haiti Documentary 'Assistance Mortelle' Wins World Competition Award at Abu Dhabi Film Festival

Assistance Mortelle (English: Fatal Assistance) has just won the World Competition award at the The 7th edition of the Abu Dhabi Film Festival. Assistance Mortelle is a documentary by Raoul Peck.

Filmaker Raoul Peck

Names: Raoul Peck

In the documentary Fatal Assistance, Haitian born filmmaker Raoul Peck takes us on a 2-year journey inside the challenging, contradictory and colossal rebuilding efforts in post-earthquake Haiti.

An article at the film festival web site states:

This film has met the selection criteria considered by the jury. Most importantly, it presented the strongest and most persuasive message to the public on very serious issues that significantly affect our behavior as human beings towards our world.

The director was successful in showing that what affects us is simply our ability to make trivial decisions that greatly influence our lives on the planet.

Congratulations to Filmmaker Raoul Peck.
