The first in an envisioned trilogy of films about port cities (followed by The Other Side of Hope), Kaurismäki’s 2011 comedy-drama tells the story of a shoeshiner who saves an immigrant child in the port city of Le Havre. When the police discover a group of illegal African immigrants inside a freight destined for London, they apprehend all of them apart from the young teen Idrissa, who manages to escape and is taken in by Marcel Marx, a former writer who is caring for his sickly wife. Once Marx discovers Idrissa’s story, he teams up with his friendly neighbours to hide the boy from the police and help him reach his original destination.  

This screening will be preceded by Kaurismäki’s short film Valimo (2007, 4m).
