THE LORD'S RIDE & EAT YOUR BONES

Directed by Jean-Charles Hue

French filmmaker Jean-Charles Hue’s first two features, THE LORD'S RIDE and EAT YOUR BONES, take place within a community rarely depicted in cinema: the Yeniche of northern France. Like gypsies, Yeniche are nomads, travelers living on the fringes of society, often in extended families governed by their own moral or ethical codes. The principal casts of both films are comprised of real-life Yeniche, and real-life brothers. A blend of documentary and dramatization imbue THE LORD'S RIDE and EAT YOUR BONES with a naturalistic, almost anthropological gaze— we gain access to their daily rhythms and rituals, the intricacies of their particular patois (even the French need subtitles), the vicissitudes of the bonds that keep the clan together yet separate from the world.
