Zombi Child

France 2019 | 103 minutes | French, Creole | Hebrew, English subtitles

In his new film, Bertrand Bonello (St. Laurent) continues to take risks, this time, diving into the depths of a modern Haitian myth, while blending cinematic genres and touching upon social, political, and ethnographic issues. This film oscillates between Haiti of 1962, where a man returns from the dead to end his days as a laborer in a sugarcane field, and a prestigious boarding school for girls on the outskirts of contemporary Paris in which a girl of Haitian origin tells her new friend about an ancient family myth. Bonello concocts these materials into an intellectual and enigmatic film fashioned in line with his meticulous style. This is an enchanting work with a lingering effect, which made its premiere at Cannes’ Directors Fortnight to wide acclaim.
