Rebelle (War Witch) director Kim Nguyen explores the Arctic and the profoundly complex emotions of two young lovers. Whiteness, everywhere. Bitter cold. This is the forbidding everyday landscape for some 200 people living in an Arctic village. It is also where Roman and Lucy, two haunted young people, fall in love and decide to flee their demons together. After the Oscar-nominated Rebelle (War Witch), Kim Nguyen once again makes the landscape a crucial part of his characters’ inner lives. An engrossing, sensitive film, shown at the Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes.
