Zombi Child

VIFF at Home

With films like Nocturama, Saint Laurent and House of Tolerance, Bertrand Bonello has established himself as one of the boldest and least predictable art house directors of the day. His latest is split between an elite French boarding school for girls (where teenage Melissa is inducted into a secret sorority) and Haiti in 1962, where a young man is transformed into the perfect farm labourer, a “zombi”. Part horror movie, part commentary on race and colonialism, Zombi Child is strikingly composed, politically provocative, and unlike any zombie movie you have seen before.

(In French, Creole, with English subs)

“The rare film that’s both rich in ideas and fun.” - Joe Blessing The Playlist

“The kind of lithe and lucid dream that gets its tendrils round your brain stem, so that when all hell finally breaks loose, you can’t jolt yourself awake from its grip.” - Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
