Dir. Bas Devos. Belgium. 2019, 85 mins. In French with English subtitles. DCP. With Saadia Bentaïeb. After a long day at work, 58-year-old Khadija falls asleep on the last subway train. When she wakes up at the end of the line, she has no choice but to make her way back to her home in Brussels on foot. On her nocturnal journey she finds herself compelled to ask for help, as well as to look out for other inhabitants of the night. The latest from award-winning director Bas Devos is an evocative and compassionate tale comprised of encounters that invariably take us to unexpected places. Absorbently captured in lowlight on 16mm, Ghost Tropic flows forward over a single night but lingers long afterwards. The film premiered at the 2019 Cannes Directors’ Fortnight. A Cinema Guild release. New York premiere
