vBack

Martinique, in the early 1930s. Young José and his grandmother live in a small village. Nearly everyone works cutting cane and barely earning a living. The overseer can fine a worker for the smallest infraction. The way to advance is to do well in school: José studies hard and succeeds in an exam allowing him to attend school in the capital, but with only a partial scholarship, the tuition is very costly.

Euzhan Palcy reached the peaks of international cinema with her debut about race and labor relations in Martinique. Silver Lion at Venice, César Award for Best First Feature.
