Claire Angelique’s directorial debut is produced by Lars von Trier’s people, Zentropa, and shot by Anthony Dod Mantle (Slumdog Millionaire) with a soundtrack by Chris Letcher. It presents Durban as beautiful and hellish. A young heroin addict, working as a dancer, porn actress and prostitute, finds the foetus of a Nigerian baby lying on the beach. This moment informs the horrifying progress of her story as drug lords take advice from their shaman and bloody voodoo practices involve her and her pregnant best friend. The subject matter could not be darker and the deeply personal narrative is as naked as one can get.
