Description

Raoul Peck contrasts the heavily documented illumination of the capitalist system, and its ethos of the will of the strongest, with the devastating reality of his native land, Haiti- "a country that doesn't exist, where intellectual discussion has become a luxury." The film's stark images of the lives of the damned on earth provide a striking backdrop for talk of "triumphant capitalism."
