Atlantics

Mar 20, 2020

Presented by Wexner Center for the Arts
Atlantics

At 37, Mati Diop is already an accomplished actress (starring in Claire Denis’s 35 Shots of Rum) and maker of short films. Her debut feature as director, Atlantics, ranks among the most exhilarating pictures of recent years. 

___________

The drama follows Ada and Souleiman, a young couple in Dakar, who are separated when Souleiman crosses the ocean with friends. But instead of becoming the expected story about the plight of the contemporary refugee, the film stays with Ada, the woman left behind. From there, Atlantics becomes a genre-bending look at love beyond time while addressing nuanced issues of class, power, and gender. A truly cinematic experience that begs to be seen on the big screen, Atlantics won the Grand Prix at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival and is Senegal’s submission to the Academy Awards for Best International Feature Film. (105 mins., DCP) Come early for a book signing with Serpell starting at 6 PM in the Wexner Center Store.
