Directed by Claire Denis | 2009

With Isabelle Huppert, Christopher Lambert, Isaach De Bankolé

A French filmmaker raised in colonial West Africa, Claire Denis is one of the few major white directors to consistently interrogate whiteness. Co-written by acclaimed novelist and playwright Marie NDiaye, this searing exploration of colonialism’s legacy stars a typically mesmerizing Isabelle Huppert as a stubbornly deluded white woman living in Africa who clings to her coffee plantation even as civil war encroaches.

Introduction by Tavia Nyong’o
Critic, historian, and professor of American Studies at Yale University
