Chocolat by Claire Denis

On April 24, catch Claire Denis’ multilayered, languorously absorbing feature debut Chocolat, drawing on her own childhood experiences growing up in colonial French Africa and touching on recurring themes throughout her work.

Returning to the town where she grew up in Cameroon after living in France for many years, a white woman (Mireille Perrier) reflects on her relationship with Protée (Isaach De Bankolé), a Black servant with whom she formed a friendship while not fully grasping the racial divides that governed their worlds.
