Tori and Lokita live in Belgium after surviving a dangerous journey from West Africa. They have a close relationship and pretend to be siblings to secure Lokita’s papers. Desperately in need of more money, they supplement their wages by selling drugs, but soon events spin out of their control.

Awards: Winner of 75th Anniversary Prize & Nominated for Palme d’Or (Cannes Film Festival)

Programmer’s Note: The Dardennes continue their impressive streak of social realist dramas with Tori and Lokita, a microscopic reminder of how problematic our world still is. Efficiently told and featuring excellent performances by first-time actors Pablo Schils and Joely Mbundu, the film feels so intimate and authentic that at some point you might think that these are real people with aspirations but are unfortunately dealt with a bad hand in life. This is as clear-eyed and powerful as the Belgian duo’s finest output.
