Tori and Lokita (Tori et Lokita) Saturday, July 15, 2023 5 p.m.-6:30 p.m.
Tickets available soon.
From two-time Palme d’Or winners Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne comes the story of young African immigrants struggling for survival on the margins of Belgian society. Tori and Lokita follows 12-year-old Tori and 17-year-old Lokita (in remarkable debut performances from Pablo Schils and Joely Mbundu). A heart-stopping thriller that casts an unflinching eye on the trials of the young and dispossessed, the latest humanist drama from the Dardenne brothers won the 75th Anniversary Prize at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival.
The MFAH film department is supported by Tenaris; The June Leaf and Robert Frank Foundation; the Vaughn Foundation; The Consulate General of the Republic of Korea; Nina and Michael Zilkha; Franci Neely; Carrin Patman and Jim Derrick; Ms. Laurence Unger; L’Alliance Française de Houston; and ILEX Foundation.
