A vision of conflict that’s as raw and real as the pictures that inspired it, Camille depicts the turbulent last days of 26-year-old French photog Camille Lepage, who was killed in 2014 while covering the ongoing civil war in the Central African Republic. This virtual screening in French with Eng. subs will be followed by a Q&A in English with the director!
« Camille, a young idealistic photojournalist, goes to the Central African Republic to cover the civil war that is brewing up. What she sees there will change her destiny forever. » – Synopsis
« While adopting a standard biopic structure that occasionally stumbles into the formulaic, Lojkine foregrounds his strengths by presenting a nuanced picture of the usual white European do-gooder in Africa, opening the film up to ambiguity and complexity. The use of Lepage’s own photographs ensures the audience sees what she saw, significantly deepening our feel for the woman while making sense of her shift from enthusiastic naïf to tough yet still empathetic professional. » – Variery
