O último dia de um presidente antes de sua quedao mais recente filme de Raoul Peck filmado no Haiti.


“A gripping feature film (…) MOLOCH TROPICAL is a satirically edged melodrama" The New York Times

"Raoul Peck tucks a searing critique of absolute power within the most elegant chamber drama. It's a masterful move." indieWIRE

"A hothouse study of a man and country crippled by corrupted ideals" The Village Voice

"Audacious in concept (...) opulent mise-en-scene" Variety

“A brilliant movie” Premiere




With this film I wanted to explore the often hidden side of power. No doubt, an occasion for me to revisit my own political experiences in Haiti and elsewhere.

What’s the final day like for a man with unrestrained power, whose supremacy has never been challenged, who is now plunging dizzyingly into a black hole of events he cannot control?
I wanted to explore what happens behind closed doors, during a tragic and unruly “Farewell to Arms”, when everything becomes possible and irretrievable at the same time? Redemption as well as demise.

During these minute gaps in History, a person reveals crudely his true essence, his fears, and his desires - given that there is no time left for craftiness.

We might even see a little bit of ourselves in these characters.

With this film, I also wanted to return to my country. I wanted to re-examine, with a Shakespearian perspective, the tragic and foolish nonsense of the past 60 years of upheaval. A battle for “democracy” which took no prisoner. Nowhere else but in Haiti has reality generated so much confusion and so many contradictions.
We chose to shoot Moloch Tropical in a unique location, the Citadelle Henry, built by King Henry Christophe at the beginning of the 19th Century atop a steep mountain.  

With a size of approximately 100,000 square feet, it is the largest fortress in the Western Hemisphere. Perhaps, more importantly it is the indestructible symbol of the only nation in human history that was created by victorious slaves.   

The single and unique time in which the trail of slavery which began in Gorée Island (another symbol) was permanently broken.
But at what cost?
