White Material

White Material

A film by Caire Denis
Starring Isabelle Huppert

In an unnamed African country, Maria Vial (an electrifying Huppert) fights to save her family’s coffee plantation in the face of rising civil unrest. When withdrawing French forces warn the remaining white residents that they’re on their own if they stay behind, Maria refuses to leave, continuing to run the farm as the specter of impending tragedy looms. White Material (2009) is an extraordinarily visceral and very personal rumination on a society turned upside down.
