Haiti - Social : Raoul Peck is pessimistic for the future
Within the framework of the presentation last Friday of its last telefilm "Moloch Tropical", made in Haiti, six months before the seism, the Haitian filmmaker Raoul Peck, [former Minister of Culture in Haiti from 1996 to 1997 under the first Préval government] has been quite pessimistic about the elections and the reconstruction of Haiti. He sees this happening some warning signs of a "risk of explosion [social] latent, and even imminent"

The filmmaker takes a highly critical eye on the power of his country and humanitarian aid after the earthquake, "I think the scandals will erupt [involving NGOs] in broad daylight in the coming months because of excessive presence of humanitarian personnel. The stage of the emergency is passed, we are now witnessing the installation of permanent infrastructure. NGOs are too numerous and poorly controlled [...] with transitional shelters, we are creating future slums "For him, humanitarian and international community crush the Haitian government already low before the disaster.

"In addition, the elections [legislative and presidential of November 28th] which are set up could involve a few months of disorders because they will be held under unacceptable conditions [...] the Provisional electoral counsel (STOCK) is disputed, like the leadership of the Head of the State". He reproaches the exclusion of the local representatives in the decision-making process to solve the emergency problems, for him, it would have was necessary to entrust to the persons in charge of district the responsibility to implement true the answers.

He thinks that "the political parties are exceeded [and do not have the means of their ambitions] [...] UN and the international community will validate any election which will have a semblance of formal democracy because they need legitimate interlocutors. They [international actors] do not want a transitional period which would push back the decisions [the reconstruction] [...] during this complex time, the situation can only worsen.

Commenting on the phenomenon Wyclef Jean, Raoul Peck believes that "celebrity is not enough to save Haiti." The former minister who had a serious dispute with the artist around the use of funds generated by a concert of the Fugees believes that "the rebuilding of Haiti go through culture in the broadest sense"

film "Moloch tropical"
"Moloch Tropical" is a film-flyer, a political satire about the downfall of a president drunk with a corrupt government, largely inspired by Jean-Bertrand Aristide. "This film tries to reflect. To understand the authoritative slip of a democratically elected president. To dissect the structure of this autistic microcosm. The "model" Aristide was particularly diverting. A priest, an apostle of the liberation theology, with charisma, bravery in front of the military putschists and an Marxist-influenced speech which defended the poor... The perfect candidate, which is no longer expected. Moreover, the whole world was allured. We all are fallen in the panel.
