Chocolat at Brattle Theatre

Friday, March 16, 2018 7:00pm

(1988) dir Claire Denis w/Isaach De Bankole, Cécile Ducasse, Giulia Boschi, François Cluzet [105 min; 35mm]
The great French auteur Claire Denis’ films were a fixture in the BIFWC, she herself visited the festival in 1995, and the first festival in 1993 featured a revival screening of this, her debut feature. Partly based on her own childhood in colonial Africa, CHOCOLAT tells the story of an African servant in a French family’s house in French Cameroon – seen through the eyes of the young girl in the family.
