ZOMBI CHILD

For his eighth feature, Bertrand Bonello masterfully injects new life into the well trod-upon zombie genre with a tale that criss-crosses between generations and hemispheres, the dead and the undead. Drawing from the true story of Clairvius Narcisse, who was reportedly zombified in 1962 Haiti and put to work in the sugarcane fields, Bonello tracks between the past and present-day Paris, where Narcisse’s (fictional) granddaughter struggles to fit in with the other (predominantly white) girls at her prestigious boarding school. With bewitching cinematography by Yves Cape (Holy Motors) and a hypnotic electro score (written by Bonello), Zombi Child offers a phantasmagorical mix of traditional Haitian mythology and haunted contemporary youth.
