Description
This bold and confident first feature from Haitian filmmaker Djinn Carrénard layers issues of race, class, religion and gender within a variety of intersecting storylines involving youngsters in Paris. From a Spanish teacher becoming increasingly and problematically involved with one of her students to a Ghana-born photographer negotiating a new affair to a young agnostic woman who claims to have received stigmata, Donoma depicts a vast cross-section of relationships and systems of thought to explore the point at which clarity falters. Impressively made with a very low budget, this dialogue-rich work abounds in originality, energy and ambition.
