Exterminate All the Brutes

Place Espace Miramar
Broadcast on 13 October 14:00 - 16:30

Exterminate All the Brutes is an eye-opening journey through time, offering an incisive look at the history of European colonialism in Africa and the Americas. The groundbreaking docuseries explores the lasting impact of exploitation and genocide on society today, pushing the boundaries of traditional documentary filmmaking by weaving director Raoul Peck’s (Oscar® nominee for I Am Not Your Negro) personal voyage into the darkest hours of humanity with scripted scenes starring Josh Hartnett (Pearl Harbor). Across four episodes, Peck deconstructs the making and masking of history, digs deep into the ideology of white supremacy, and challenges audiences to rethink the very notion of how history is written. 

HBO and Arte France present a 4 episode series, written and directed by Raoul Peck, produced by Raoul Peck, Rémi Grellety and Velvet Film.
