LA ROUTE DE CAYENNE
THE ROAD TO CAYENNE

France / 2020 / 32’
World Premiere

Christophe Clavert
After Little President (FID 2020), Christophe
Clavert delves deeper into the topic of the
oppressed and the pleasures of dialectics. First
picture, on location: after he escaped from an
immigration detention centre, a young African
man roams around the French countryside in
the hope of reaching Paris, even though the
police is at his heels. Second picture, interior
reverse shot: in a late 19th century apartment
in Paris, under the exotic and indifferent eye of
a parrot evocative of Flaubert’s novels, three
decadent bourgeois become inebriated while
commenting on the hectic political news. A
wandering and farcical fantasy, La Route de
Cayenne
is nevertheless a bitter and serious
depiction of a political fixture across the ages:
a colonial Republic with Cayenne and its penal
colony as an unofficial capital. (Cyril Neyrat)
