Our Father, the Devil
February 11 @ 4:10 pm - 5:58 pm
Marie, an African refugee, works as the head chef at a retirement home in a sleepy mountain town in the south of France. Her simple but satisfying life is upended by the arrival of Father Patrick, an African priest who she recognizes as the warlord who slaughtered her family. As he further endears himself to her community and in the place she now calls home, Marie must decide if she will exact her revenge or cling to the new life she’s built. A provocative and daring exploration of fear, trauma, and revenge, this masterfully told story with brilliant performances is a fearless and explosive modern-day thriller examining human complexities.
