Saint Omer (12A)

F Rated Film
Friday 17th February 2023 - Wednesday 22nd February 2023

Dir. Alice Diop, France, 2022, 123 mins, subtitled. Cast. Kayije Kagame, Guslagie Malanda, Robert Cantarella.

Alice Diop reinvents the courtroom drama in this concentrated, gripping study of a writer and the young African woman whose fate comes to fascinate her. A young novelist, Rama, travels to follow the trial of Laurence, a young Senegalese woman accused of killing her daughter. Pregnant herself, Rama’s own history, doubts, and fears are steadily dislodged as the defendant's testimony unfolds, exposing the corrosive racism she endured on her arrival in Europe and her isolation from her family back home. Loosely inspired by a real court case where a mother abandoned her baby to the rising tides on a beach, Saint Omer is a finely observed drama which probes the unspeakable.

After receiving critical acclaim at this year's Venice Film Festival where it won the Silver Lion, the Best Debut Film Award and the Edipo Re Award, Saint Omer is France’s entry at the 2023 Oscars.
