An Evening with Raoul Peck and Jeffrey Brown

Honoring esteemed Director, Screenwriter and Producer Raoul Peck, Director of acclaimed film “I am not your Negro”, "Lumumba" and newly released HBO series, “Exterminate all the Brutes”, voted best docuseries by the AAFCA, among TV honors.

Born in Haiti, raised in the Congo, U.S., France and Germany, Peck earned an economic-engineering master’s degree at the University of Berlin and then studied film at the Academy of Cinema and Television in Berlin. He served as Haiti’s Minister of Culture from 1996 to 1997.

Raoul Peck is one of the most significant and prolific filmmakers of our time, richly rewarded for his historical, political and artistic work.

Jeffrey Brown is celebrated Senior Arts and Entertainment Correspondent for the “PBS Newshour”.
