Colonialism, cultural appropriation and zombies

In 1962 a Haitian man is awoken from the dead only to be forced into slavery on a sugar plantation. 55 years later a girl confesses a family secret to her new friends at a prestigious Paris boarding school. As these two timelines merge together, a tale of voodoo, imperialism and cultural appropriation emerges from the world of Haitian folklore. Directed by Bertrand Bonello (HOUSE OF TOLERANCE, NOCTURAMA), ZOMBI CHILD traces the myth of the zombie back to its roots and examines its evolution through the prism of colonialism.
