63rd LONDON FILM FESTIVAL (2nd-13th October 2019) DAY 6

Every day (from October 2nd to October 13th) I will be selecting the London Film Festival choices you have a chance to get tickets for and the movies you are unlikely to see in London very soon unless you go to see them at the Festival. Here is the LFF's main website for the general information you need. Don't worry if some of the recommended films are sold out by the time you read this as there are always some tickets on offer which go on sale 30 minutes before each screening. Here is all the information you need about the best way to get tickets.

This fascinating new film from the director of the 2016 London Film Festival hit Nocturama is also being screened on October 6th at the Haymarket Empire at 6.20pm and on October 11tht at the Prince Charles Cinema at 3.30pm.You can find the full details here.

London Film Festival introduction:
Haiti, 1962. A man is resurrected from the dead. Forced to work on a sugar cane plantation, Clairvius Narcisse is trapped in perpetual night. Fast forward to contemporary Paris. Haitian teen Mélissa is the new girl at a prestigious school, where cerebral lectures on liberalism are de rigeur. Mélissa makes her first friend in dreamer Fanny when they discover a shared passion for Stephen King. Fanny invites Mélissa to join a secret ‘literary sorority’. But while presentations on Rihanna keep their story firmly 21st-century, something more ancient is at play, with Mélissa harbouring an incendiary family secret. Influenced by the zombie films beloved by Bonello in his youth, Zombi Child teases at genre elements, stirs up post-colonial debate and builds to a truly audacious conclusion.
