With: Kayije Kagame, Guslagie Malanda
In the Pas-de-Calais region of northern France lies the town of Saint Omer’s court of law. Rama, a mixed-race novelist, attends the trial of Laurence Coly, a young Senegalese immigrant accused of killing her 15-month-old daughter by abandoning her to the rising tide on a Channel beach. But as the trial develops, the words of the accused and witness testimonies shake Rama's convictions about herself and her own pregnancy and call into question the judgement of those attending the trial…including our own.
“Puts a mother on the stand and the audience in the jury box to find humanity in the inhumane. A film of vast reach and great complexity” Rotten Tomatoes
