Screening:  SIMÉON (1992)

The Los Angeles Times describes SIMÉON “one of the sunniest and most charming ghost stories ever told.” In a small village in the West Indies, Siméon, a music teacher and Isidore, his star disciple—a mechanic by necessity and guitarist by passion—shared the same ambition, an impossible dream — to put their island on the world’s music map with Zouk music. Orélie, Isidore’s ten year old daughter helps him in his endeavors by bringing Siméon back to life after he fell from his tree trying to get too close to the full moon. SIMÉON becomes a lively movie, a real extravaganza of color and music, an antidote to gloom, a tribute to all that the Caribbean can create for our delight. SIMÉON so marks the return of Euzhan Palcy to her roots, nine years after her seminal movie, the classic SUGAR CANE ALLEY.
