Posted on Wednesday, March 24th, 2021 by Hoai-Tran Bui
With his Oscar-nominated documentary I Am Not Your Negro, director Raoul Peck upended film conventions, basing his film on James Baldwin’s unfinished manuscript “Remember This House,” and exploring the history of racism in the U.S. through a mixture of documentary footage, archival material, animation, and scripted scenes to create a truly singular documentary. He’ll be expanding on those experimental techniques with his new HBO docuseries Exterminate All the Brutes, which seeks to explore colonialism and its wide-reaching ramifications, including the renewed rise of white supremacy.
