"A poignant, haunting study of well-intentioned but doomed folly, emodied by a heroine whose bravery renders her blind to the world that is crumbling around her." - Miami Herald

"White Material is unhurried in its storytelling but unshakable in its impact." - St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"This haunting drama by Claire Denis burns with a mute fear and rage at the ongoing atrocities in central Africa." - Chicago Reader

A fearless French woman attempts to run her family's coffee plantation in an unnamed African coutnry. Torn violently apart by hate-fueled civil conflict, this unforgiving setting soon turns against the foreign family, declaring them outlaws in their new home. In a brash effort to save her family and livelihood, she risks everything, fighting with every shred of her will to buck the rebel forces wrestling for control of local power.
