Films on the Green Presents Chocolat

Part of Films on the Green 2019

©Janus Films

Directed by Claire Denis, 1988, PG-13, 1h45, France-West Germany-Cameroon
With Isaach De Bankolé, Giulia Boschi, François Cluzet, Cécile Ducasse

Presented with the support of Sézane.

In 1950s French Cameroon, curious eight-year-old France (Ducasse) spends her days amidst the paradise of her family’s estate along with her always traveling father Marc (Cluzet), her bored, frustrated mother Aimée (Boschi), and Protée (De Bankolé), the noble, intelligent “houseboy.” Everyday routine changes when a plane makes an emergency landing nearby, bringing a motley collection of characters to the house and causing the heavenly façade of the household to unravel.

The 2019 Films on the Green lineup focuses on female directors in French and Francophone cinema through a selection of 13 movies. This 12th edition pays tribute to “Women Behind the Camera” in honor of Agnès Varda, feminist filmmaker and pioneer of the French New Wave, who passed away earlier this year.
