Revival House

An affluent white woman (Mireille Perrier) leaves France to return to her childhood home in Cameroon. Her arrival sparks reflections on a youth spent in privilege, ignorance and insulation, even after she bonded with  an African servant (Isaach de Bankolé). Clair Denis’ autobiographical work explores our ability to remain willfully blind to the racial and social tensions that help define us. (France-Cameroon, 1988, 105m)

“A film of infinite delicacy … made with the complexity and subtlety of a great short story.” –Roger Ebert
