Film Screening: Atlantique with Mati Diop


Monday, November 18, 2019, 7:00pm to 9:00pm


Harvard Film Archive, 24 Quincy Street, Cambridge

The stunning debut feature by actress-turned-filmmaker Mati Diop is a bewitching tale of longing focused on a young Senegalese woman gripped by her forbidden love for an exploited construction worker who abruptly emigrates to Europe but seems to be lingering mysteriously behind. A surprise but well-deserved winner of the coveted Grand Prix at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, Atlantique establishes the recent Radcliffe Fellow as a central figure in a new wave of politically charged yet lyrically shaped art cinema that is reorienting contemporary filmmaking towards bold new directions.


Cost: $12

Tickets are available to purchase 45 minutes before showtime at the cinematheque on the lower level of the Carpenter Center. Cash only.
