Raoul Peck (L6, L7) Because he cannot visit Congo, he relies on home-movie footage, archival material in Europe, interviews with journalists and Belgian colonial officials, and family of Lumumba. In essence, Peck creates a documentary out of what he calls “ces trous noirs” or black holes. To investigate these “black holes”, Peck must adopt a position of subjectivity (Peck-Lumumba) rather than the more traditional “objective” stance toward his subject. To not make the documentary is not an option for Peck. Such a decision would only contribute to the erasure of Lumumba’s memory.
