LuxFilmLab Juin : Dahomey

Découvrez le LuxFilmLab de juin

Watch Mati Diop’s latest documentary on Wednesday June 5 at 7:30 p.m. at Ciné Utopia. After receiving the Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 2019 for Atlantique, in 2024 she won the Golden Bear at the Berlinale for Dahomey.

The Franco-Senegalese director films the return to Benin, the former Kingdom of Dahomey, of the statues and treasures looted by the French colonial troops in 1892. But what attitude to adopt to these ancestors’ homecoming in a country that had to forge ahead in their absence?


Tickets for our new LuxFilmLab are available on the Kinepolis webshop at the regular rates at Ciné Utopia*.

About LuxFilmLab:
The first Wednesday of every month, LuxFilmLab – a joint initiative by Luxembourg City Film Festival and Kinepolis – highlights one feature film, chosen in cooperation by LuxFilmFest’s team and the Kinepolis programme team. A member of the programming team introduces the special LuxFilmLab screenings, with the aim of supporting films whose release dates didn’t allow for them to be selected for the Festival itself but whose artistic qualities would very likely have led to their inclusion in the LuxFilmFest line-up.

*LuxFilmFest isn’t involved in the commercial aspects of these screenings. Access to the screenings and ticket prices are set by Kinepolis.
