Raoul Peck was born in Haiti, raised in Zaire (Congo) and France. HIs film credits include short experimental works, socio-political documentaries, and features based on fact as well as fiction. His feature L'homme sur les quais(1993) (The Man by the Shore) was the first Haitian film to be released in theatres in the United States and was selected for competition at the 1993 Cannes Film Festival. His feature Lumumba (2000) screened in Director’s Fortnight, Cannes Film Festival, 2000. It also aired on HBO along with Sometimes in April, his powerful narrative on Rwandan genocide. His present work-in-progress is a documentary on the late author/activist James Baldwin.
A true internationalist, Peck divides his time between Europe and the United States and for a brief time in the 1990s he served as Haiti's Minister of Culture. In 1994 he was awarded the Nestor Almendros Prize by the Human Rights Watch in New York; and in 2001 he received the organization's Lifetime Achievement Award.
In January 2010, he was appointed Chairman of the École Nationale Supérieure des Métiers de l'Image et du Son (Le Fémis), the prestigious French national film school.

Raoul Peck will also present a Master Class on Tuesday, February 4, 4:00PM at Scribe Video Center
