About the films

Fouyé Zétwal (Plowing the Stars) directed Wally Fall and written by Anyès Noel
On her way to meet her dad, a woman reflects on her life. Along the way, the country looks empty to her and, slowly, memories of past lives are coming back to her. Is it real ? Or is it only a dream ?
2021: Conch Shell International Film Fest Best Cinematography Award Winner).

Map-Ternité written and directed by Luc Saint-Éloy
Pierre, a Guadeloupean man in his forties, is struggling with the first pregnancy of his wife Marie-Line. The expectation of this first child turns into an obsession. His nights are regularly filled with nightmares. One of his dreams leads us into the fantastic world of Caribbean tales and legends and on the tracks of Caribbean women. A strange universe awaits us there.
