Félicité | Carbon Arc Cinema | Friday, 09. February 2018

FÉLICITÉ
dir. Alain Gomis / Senegal, France / 2017 / 129 min.

This fourth feature from Senegalese-French filmmaker Alain Gomis is steeped in visual and musical lyricism. FÉLICITÉ follows a fiercely independent club singer and single mother who lives her life in the chaotically vibrant Congolese capital of Kinshasa with a proud defiance — she doesn't need marriage, a man, or even love to get by. Her life is thrown into turmoil when her 14-year-old son gets into a horrific car accident. To raise the money to save him, she sets out on a breakneck race through the streets of electric Kinshasa, a world of music and dreams.

Winner of the Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize at Berlinale - Berlin International Film Festival, FÉLICITÉ is also an official selection at TIFF and New York Film Festival, and is Senegal's official entry for Best Foreign Language Film for this year's Academy Awards.
