'Atlantics' Trailer

Director: Mati Diop
Plot: After a group of unpaid construction workers disappears at sea one night in search of a better life abroad, the women they have left behind in Dakar are overwhelmed with a mysterious fever. Ada, 17, secretly grieves for her love Souleiman, one of the departed workers, but she has been promised to another man. After a fire breaks out on her wedding night, a young policeman is sent to investigate the crime. [Potentially spoiler-y]Little does he know that the aggrieved workers have come back as haunting, possessive spirits. While many of them seek vengeance for their unpaid labor, Souleiman has come back for a different purpose - to be with his Ada one last time.

Available on Netflix November 29th, with a limited theatrical release preceding that date.

Winner of the Grand Prix at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, and the Best International Feature Film nominee from Senegal.
