Why We Selected: GRIGRIS

This month’s Film Club selection is GRIGRIS, the story of a young man with dreams of building a future, jeopardized by crime and difficult choices.

Read on to learn more about why we decided to share this wholly unique film with our Club subscribers.

A film like Grigris is difficult to categorize - happily so. In it we discovered joyous energy, as well as deep drama — subtle characterizations, and well-employed genre mechanisms. Is Grigris an art-house film? An ethnographic look at poverty in Africa? A crime story? Thanks to the skill of director Mahamet Saleh-Haroun (director of Film Movement classic A Screaming Man), it is all three.

Grigris takes us on the well-worn adventure of a good man who is forced by necessity into crime, and yet, anchored by the amazingly physical title performance of Souleymane Démé, so much of this film feels fresh. What other film offers dazzling dance sequences and glamorous photo-shoots, and nestles them organically alongside images of gasoline smuggling, violence, and the day-to-day hardships of Chadian life? We think you’ll find Grigris to be a classic story, vibrantly told - and we’re proud to add it to the Film Movement collection.
