Chocolat

Still image from the film Chocolat
Claire Denis draws from her childhood experiences in West Africa when her father was stationed there as a French Official. A young woman who returns to Africa recalls a formidable childhood incident, when stranded travelers were forced to stay with her parents. They include a newly married couple, a former priest, a wealthy plantation owner and his black concubine. Paired with the host family and their dignified houseboy, Protee, the group spans class and race, and in close quarters demonstrate power struggles in a prejudiced society. A line is there, but not there. (35mm presentation)
