Description

"Zombi Child seeks to interrogate the bitter legacy of French colonialism, from its brutal applications in the past to its spiritual and psychological reverberations in the present." —Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

"Cerebral and slippery, the French writer-director Bertrand Bonello's new film Zombi Child isn't really a horror movie. Bonello wants his undead to provoke (mild) discomfort and (major) self-evaluation, rather than shock or terror."—Andrew Lapin, NPR

 

In 1962 Haiti, a man is brought back from the dead to work on a sugar cane plantation. In Paris, 55 years later, at a prestigious all girl's school, Melissa, a young Haitian teenager, confesses all her family secrets to a group of new friends - never imagining that this strange tale will convince a heartbroken classmate to do the unthinkable. Presented by the Bijou Film Board, as part of our After Hours series and as the first film of our 2021 virtual slate!
