Join us for a free 35mm screening of Chocolat, directed and co-written by Claire Denis. In this 1988 drama, a young French woman revisits the landscapes and relationships of her childhood home in colonial Cameroon. Vincent Canby wrote of Denis's work on her debut film, "She is astonishing. There are no dark corners in the story. Everything that happens is vivid and clear, though subject to the kind of speculation that tantalizes and rewards." Isaach De Bankolé, Giulia Boschi, and François Cluzet star. Introduction by Dudley Andrew and Xavier Lee. 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.
