Watch the conversation with Raoul Peck about Exterminate All the Brutes
"There are no alternative facts." - Raoul Peck
During The Critical Room at last year's Film from the South, we showed Raoul's Peck series Exterminate All The Brutes, at the same time as we got to see a conversation with the film director and historian of ideas Dag Herbjørnsrud. Exterminate All The Brutes combines classic documentary archive material with quotes and clips from popular culture, and with dramatized thought experiments that illustrate historical events.
Exterminate All the Brutes is a shocking historical review of the brutal history, present and future of colonialism. Peck himself refers to this four-episode documentary as an attempt to capture the origins of white supremacy.
We have received several inquiries about publishing the conversation with Raoul Peck and Dag Herbjørnsrud, so we are now making it available here on our website.
