Raoul Peck

Fatal Assistance

Assistance mortelle


Three years after the devastating earthquake that brought Haiti to its knees, the country remains a symbol of unfixable misery. Battling this image, native son Raoul Peck goes beyond the rhetoric of First World onlookers and their tendency to turn poverty into spectacle, shining a damning light on the damage done by international aid agencies whose well-meaning but ignorant assumptions turned a nightmare into an unsolvable tragedy.

- Variety Staff

… Fatal Assistance is a chilling indictment of how billions of dollars in aid were squandered or lost, and how aid and politics are inextricably linked.

- Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter
