Sac la mort
Patrice is having a particularly bad day. Not only does he find out, from the killer himself, that his brother has been decapitated, but he is also expelled from his own home. While his mother cries out for vengeance, Patrice would mainly like to find shelter. Set on the Reunion Island of today, a place still crowded with signs of an ancient and mystical society where symbols and witchcraft overwhelm everyday life, Patrice fights to avoid lapsing into madness. Emmanuel Parraud brilliantly immerses us in an unprecedented fictional universe, and he does it in his mother tongue, Creole. Without ever giving into folklore, the film rests on a marvellous range of characters, that all seem to be walking on the edge, between nightmare and reality.
Emmanuel Parraud a réalisé plusieurs courts métrages remarqués en festival, notamment La Statue de la Vierge et La Steppe. Son premier long-métrage, Avant-poste, a été présenté à l’ACID à Cannes en 2009. Sac la mort est son deuxième long-métrage.
