LE PROFIT ET RIEN D’AUTRE – PROFIT, NICHTS ALS PROFIT

Port á Piment is a village of fishermen in Haiti. In his film essay Raoul Peck uses it as contrast to the metropolises of the world where relentless pursuit for capital and success characterizes the people. Instead of dominating financial markets and stock exchanges there is only a market in the small town where people sell food with narrow profit margin. Shall profit really be meaning of life? Accompanied by Abdullah Ibrahim’s music the movie gives utterance to this central question through scenes of daily life, TV news and old feature films.
