The latest from French master Bertrand Bonello (Saint Laurent, Nocturama) – Zombi Child is an “audacious & cunning” (Little White Lies) new take on classic horror tropes that “poses timely and provocative questions…a zombi drama that’s not undead but bracingly alive” (Screen Daily)

Haiti, 1962. A man is brought back from the dead only to be sent to the living hell of the sugarcane fields. In Paris, 55 years later, at a prestigious all-girls boarding school, Melissa, a young Haitian teenager, confesses an old family secret to a group of new friends – never imagining that this strange tale will convince a heartbroken classmate to do the unthinkable.

“Folding history onto itself more explicitly than any of Bonello’s previous films, “Zombi Child” peels back centuries of racist stereotypes to rescue Voodoo from the stuff of black magic and portray it instead as a kind of communion — a communion between spirits, a communion between generations, and a communion between the dislocated joints of an empire. [E]ven the most terrifying scenes are rooted in something real.” – David Ehrlich, IndieWire
