White Material

Directed by Claire Denis
France, Cameroon, 2009


Maria is an entitled white woman living in Africa, unwilling to give up her family’s crumbling coffee plantation despite the civil war closing in on her. White Material is a gripping evocation of the death throes of European colonialism and a fascinating look at a woman lost in her own mind.
