Félicité, the new film from Alain Gomis, is tough, tender, lyrical, mysterious, funny, and terrifying. Following a screening at the 55th New York Film Festival, the director participated in a Q&A in which he discussed why he wanted to make a film with a female protagonist, the appeal of shooting in Senegal, the musical foundation of the film, and much more.

Félicité opens on October 27, courtesy of Strand Releasing. To see more events from the 55th New York Film Festival, as well as Film Society events throughout the year, subscribe to our YouTube channel!
