Synopsis

Made during confinement, In My Room plunges us into the poignant story of a woman at the twilight of her life, through recordings of the director’s deceased grandmother. Living rooms become stages where life is performed. Windows become portals to the lives of others.

Our take

Shot in her Paris studio during lockdown and based on recordings of her grandmother, director Mati Diop has ingeniously created a melodramatic home movie that playfully blends themes of womanhood, transmission, and freedom.
