Chris Kelly’s Modern Cinema Festival

  • October 13, 2019 - 4:30pm

You've never seen a zombie movie like this. Shuffling between 1962 Haiti, where an undead man is forced into slavery in the sugar cane fields, and contemporary France, where the slave's descendant is the newest student at an all-girls boarding school, this one-of-a-kind movie from director Bertrand Bonello (NOCTURAMA, SAINT LAURENT) builds an atmosphere of mystery and unease—all the while offering up a blistering critique of French colonialist history. In French with English subtitles.

103 minutes; French with English subtitles; NR

Modern Cinema returns, hosted by Christopher Kelly in partnership with Fortress Presents.
This year’s event will once again present some of the best films of the year before they are available in theaters. Each screening will be introduced by Kelly, the former film and culture critic for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and currently Managing Producer for Entertainment for New Jersey Advance Media. Kelly also frequently covers film-related topics for Texas Monthly and his work has appeared in the New York Times, Salon, and the Boston Globe

​These provide priority access to all screenings. Regular passes and single screening tickets will be available at a later date.
