Directed by Claire Denis | 1988

With Isaach de Bankolé, Cécile Ducasse, Giulia Boschi

Denis’ stunning debut feature finds her already in command of the suggestive, elliptical style that has become her signature. Informed by the filmmaker’s own experience growing up in West Africa, Chocolat explores the tensions—racial, social, and sexual—between colonizer and colonized as seen through the eyes of an eight-year-old French girl living in 1950s Cameroon and gradually awakening to the racism that surrounds her.

Sun, Mar 31 at 4pm: Intro by Meenasarani Murugan, Professor in the Department of Communication and Media Studies at Fordham University
