Kanaval (LUXFILMFEST)

Henri Pardo, 112 min, 2023 - Canada, Luxembourg, Quebec
It is 1975, during the carnival celebrations of a small Haitian port town six-year-old Rico delights in the festivities but returns home to find his schoolteacher mother under attack. They flee together to rural Quebec where they are taken in by a kindly couple. Struggling to adjust to Canada, with its snow, racist villagers, and school bullies, Rico begins to slip into an imaginary world, inventing a half-animal, half-human friend from Haitian myth who becomes his guiding light. A mystical and empathetic look at childhood which doesn’t shy from addressing the challenges of being Black in Canadian society. Screen newcomer Rayan Dieudonné excels as the shy yet mischievously spirited Rico in this engaging story about family, displacement, and finding his way in a new country. In celebration of Francophonie Month 2024, the Canadian Embassy in Luxembourg would like to graciously offer a preferential rate for the Canadian francophone film Kanaval. The film is a vibrant tribute to diversity, including Francophone diversity in Canada and beyond. With the support of Délégation Générale du Québec à Bruxelles
