HEADING SOUTH

FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
On the sun-drenched island of Haiti at the end of the 1970s, tourists idle away their vacations in the palm-fringed paradise of the beach hotels. Brenda, Ellen and Sue, three North American women, converge on the island looking for flirtation, relaxation and respite from their mundane jobs and marriages. They find exactly what they are looking for in Legba, an enigmatic local Adonis-like boy, whose beauty and passion captivates them all and who leads them away from the gilded cage of tourism and opens their eyes to the poverty and dangers of living in Haiti in the midst of the 'Baby Doc' Duvalier dictatorial regime. "Laurent Cantet’s film, about 3 women who go to Haiti on a sex vacation, is a piercing study of the messy interaction between sex, race, class and culture" - Ira Sachs
