Directed by Bertrand Bonello (France, 2019, 103 min.). French, Haitian, and English with English subtitles.
In 1962, a man is brought back from the dead only to be sent to the living hell of the Haitian sugarcane fields. In Paris, 55 years later, at the prestigious Légion d’honneur boarding school, a Haitian girl confesses an old family secret to new friends with unthinkable consequences.
The latest from French master Bertrand Bonello (Saint Laurent, Nocturama), Zombi Child is an “audacious and cunning” (Little White Lies) new take on classic horror tropes that “poses timely and provocative questions... a drama that’s not undead but bracingly alive.” (Screen Daily).
