 (in competition at Toronto and San Sebastián in 2016). The story, written by the director himself, kicks off in Haiti in 1962. A man is brought back from the dead only to be sent to the living hell of the sugarcane fields. In Paris, 55 years later, at the prestigious Légion d'honneur boarding school, a Haitian girl confesses an old family secret to a group of new friends – never imagining that this strange tale will convince a heartbroken classmate to do the unthinkable… Produced by My New Pictures and Les Films du Bal, and co-produced by Arte France Cinéma, the feature will be distributed in France from 12 June onwards, courtesy of Ad Vitam

Playtime’s slate also includes another film set to be world-premiered in the Directors’ Fortnight: The Bare Necessity [+lee también:
