Dir. Bertrand Bonello | France/Haiti | 2020 | 103 min. | NR | DCP
In French, Haitian, and English with English subtitles
Haiti, 1962. A man is brought back from the dead only to be sent to the living hell of the sugarcane fields. In Paris, 55 years later, at a prestigious all-girls boarding school, Melissa, a young Haitian teenager, confesses an old family secret to a group of new friends – never imagining that this strange tale will convince a heartbroken classmate to do the unthinkable. As director Bertrand Bonello (NOCTURAMA, SAINT LAURENT) moves fluidly between 1962 Haiti and contemporary Paris, these two disparate strands ultimately come together in a film that evokes Jacques Tourneur more than George Romero, and feverishly dissolves boundaries of time and space as it questions colonialist mythmaking.
