Play Trailer

The latest from French master Bertrand Bonello (Saint Laurent, Nocturama), Zombi Child is an “audacious and cunning” (Little White Lies) new take on classic horror tropes that “poses timely and provocative questions...a zombie drama that’s not undead but bracingly alive" (Screen Daily).

Haiti, 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 a prestigious all-girls boarding school, Melissa, a young Haitian teenager, 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.

In English, French and Haitian, with English subtitles.
