BLOODY ROOTS & CURACAO
BLOODY ROOTS (Fichues racines)
US Premiere
Viviane, a Guadeloupian woman, about forty, lives alone in a project in a Paris suburb. She decides that her cardiac mother who stayed in Guadeloupe should come live with her in France so she may take care of her. But, almost totally isolated, her mother has difficulty adapting to her new life. In the small apartment, Viviane gradually traps her mother in a strange world, invaded by roots of tropical plants: a forest without exit.

Guadeloupe, 2011, 28 min, Drama, French, Marie-Claude Pernelle, dir.


Shown with
CURACAO
US Premiere
A fascinating documentary that explores the awkward and strained interaction between the locals on the Island of Curaçao and the Dutch community that lives there. The Dutch live in their own world, getting together at segregated parties and on golf courses on private resorts. The blacks and whites hardly ever speak to each other. The manager of a local supermarket develops a training program focusing on the question: "Why do Antilleans refuse to be leaders?" Slowly but surely, it becomes clear that the Dutch don't have the faintest idea about their role in the island's past, let alone its effect on contemporary society.  

Curaçao, The Netherlands, 2010, 75 min, Doc, Dutch and Papiamento with English subtitles, Sarah Vos, dir.
