Eight-year-old Vicky (newcomer Sally Dramé) has an unusual gift: she can recreate any scent she comes across, even that of her beloved mother Joanne (Palme d’Or winner Adèle Exarchopoulos).
When Vicky’s estranged aunt suddenly returns to their mountain town, the invocation of her fragrance plunges the young girl back in time to unravel the mystery of Joanne’s fiery past with her now sister-in-law.
The acclaimed breakout from filmmaker Léa Mysius (screenwriter for Claire Denis and Jacques Audiard), THE FIVE DEVILS forges a witchy and wildly imaginative fable out of family secrets and queer romance.
This special screening will feature an introduction from Olivia Neilson, Riverside Studios’ Development and Community Manager who holds an MA in Film Studies from King’s College London.
