It's unfortunate that his excellent Moloch Tropical isn't yet readily available for rent here in the USA. You can buy it from Sankofa.com for $30, but it's not really available widely, and definitely not as a Netflix rental.

It's unfortunate that his excellent Moloch Tropical isn't yet readily available for rent here in the USA. You can buy it from Sankofa.com for $30, but it's not really available widely, and definitely not as a Netflix rental.

His Lumumba (which was really my intro to his work, about a decade ago) is far more accessible however.

Raoul Peck

Anyway... the details on the above call for papers follows, from Toni Pressley-Sanon in the Department of Transnational Studies at the University at Buffalo, and Sophie Saint-Just in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at Fordham University.

The critically acclaimed filmmaker, Raoul Peck, has a long and impressive filmography that includes both feature films such as Haitian Corner (1987-88), L’homme sur les quais (The Man by the Shore) (1993) and Moloch Tropical (2009) and documentaries, like Lumumba, la mort du prophète (Lumumba, Death of a Prophet) (1992) and Le profit et rien d’autre (Profit and Nothing But! Or Impolite Thoughts on the Class Struggle) (2001). The editors of this proposed volume seek articles for possible consideration in an anthology that will explore Peck’s contributions to several fields. We invite essay proposals from scholars and independent researchers in various disciplines to reflect on different aspects of Peck’s film career. We are interested in a wide range of topics, analytical frames, and comparative approaches.

Questions may include but are definitely not limited to:

• Intersections of feature film and the documentary medium

• The role of orality/oral tradition

• Treatments of history

• Treatments of myth

• Violence, power, trauma

• Narrative voices

• The art of the mise-en-scène

• Peck’s place in the world/third cinema tradition

• Methodologies

• Use of language(s)

Please submit a 400 word abstract and a one-page CV to the editors by February 15, 2013.

Previously published material will be considered. If the editors accept your proposal, final essays must be submitted by October 1, 2013.

Please submit abstracts electronically to: toni.sanon@gmail.com and sophie.saintjust@gmail.com.
