France 2022, 122 mins. Director. Alice Diop. Starring Kayije Kagame, Guslagie Malanda
Laurence Coly is a student and Senegalese immigrant accused of leaving her 15-month-old daughter on a beach to be swept away by the tide in Berck. Rama, a literature professor and novelist, travels from Paris to Saint-Omer to observe the trial of Laurence Coly and write about the case. Rama, who is four months pregnant and, like Coly, is in a mixed-race relationship, feels a personal connection to Coly. She plans to write a modern-day retelling of the Greek Medea myth about the case. The film is based on a true story. Alice Diop, the film director, attended the trial.
