Stolen Images:
People & Power in the Films of Raoul Peck

Afridiziak is proud to be a promotional partner for the
Stolen Images: People & Power in the Films of Raoul Peck season at the BFI.

‘I want people to engage and to discuss. I want to interact’
Raoul Peck

Raoul Peck makes hauntingly compelling films from recent Pan-African history – telling stories of universal significance.

Stolen Images, our season title (chosen by Peck), refers to the long-standing debate about African representations in cinema. Peck’s films Lumumba and Sometimes in April are penetrating dramas set against momentous recent historical events, yet it’s also his eye and ear for detail in ordinary, everyday life that reveals the deeper forces governing our fate. From the émigré’s determination to confront his torturer in Brooklyn, NY in Haitian Corner, to the child’s-eye-view of the horrors of Papa Doc’s Haiti in Man by the Shore, to the dark secrets and sexual intrigue of a wealthy couple as they struggle for survival amid Haiti’s ruins in Murder in Pacot (inspired by Pasolini’s Theorem), this ability to portray epic encounters while knitting the personal with the political has made Peck the acclaimed director he is today.

Season co-curated by the BFI’s David Somerset, Colin Prescod, Chair of the Institute of Race Relations and Maggi Hurt, BFI Advance Programme Co-ordinator.
