Bertrand Bonello’s clever twist on the zombie genre is a penetrating critique of France’s history of colonialism and slavery in Haiti. Melissa, an orphan of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, befriends Fanny, a white French teen who attends an elite Paris boarding school with a secret sorority. When Melissa reveals a family secret about her grandfather Clairvius, who became zombified before working as a slave on a sugarcane plantation, Fanny uses it to do the unthinkable. Zombi Child reveals the true horrors of cultural appropriation and colonialist myth over generations.

This screening is part of the Caribbean Film Series, which presents feature films made by Caribbean filmmakers that highlight the richness, uniqueness, and viability of Caribbean cinema to Brooklyn, home to the largest population of Caribbean nationals in the United States, and to all New York City residents and visitors.
