Ghost Tropic

  •   Bas Devos

When cleaning lady Khadija misses her stop on the last train, with no money in her pocket and no one to call, she must make her way home. The premise is simple, but the film casts a bewitching spell as it tracks the Maghrebi immigrant on her nocturnal journey through a grim urban landscape punctuated by moments of humanity and light. Shot at night on gorgeous 16mm film, Ghost Tropic is hypnotic and haunting, one of the great visual achievements of the year.

“It’s meek cinema at its finest and richly deserves to inherit the screens.”

Special Guests

Scheduled to attend: Director Bas Devos and Producer Marc Goyens
