Haiti - Cinema : «I Am Not Your Negro» by Raoul Peck, best documentary of the year
After having won the Audience Award at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) at its world premiere, http://www.icihaiti.com/en/news-18827-icihaiti-movies-raoul-peck-was-acclaimed-at-the-toronto-film-festival.html , the non-conventional documentary "I Am Not Your Negro", of the Haitian filmmaker Raoul Peck, received the Best Documentary of the Year Award at the 42nd Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards (LAFCA).

The documentary features three black icons linked, suddenly disappeared: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. all assassinated, taken from the unfinished work of African-American writer James Baldwin, writer (1924-1987), which documented both the life that the murder of Martin Luther King Jr, of Medgar Evers, who was their friend as well as the tragic fate of Malcolm X. Peck reconstitutes the book dealing with the issue of race in the United States and brings to the screen the words used by Baldwin interested in the recurring racial problem in the United States, scene of riots in recent years because of blacks killed without real justification by the forces of order. The voice of Samuel Jackson is used in the original version of the film and that of Joey Starr for the French version (dubbed).

The LAFCA will formally present its awards at a ceremony in mid-January and Raoul Peck's documentary will be screened in cinemas starting February 2017.
