Directed by Chantal Akerman | 2011

With Stanislas Merhar, Aurora Marion, Marc Barbé

“uniquely enthralling”
—Time Out New York

In Akerman’s hands, Joseph Conrad’s novel about a Dutch merchant’s descent into madness in the Malaysian jungle becomes a richly sensorial, feverishly inspired excursion into the heart of darkness. Hypnotic long-takes and visceral sound design lends Almayer’s Folly a menacingly oppressive mood of tropical torpor in a colonialist hell.
