Cinema

The White Knights (Les Chevaliers blancs) with Vincent LIndon

Escaping the domestic claustrophobia of a cramped apartment in After Love, Joachim Lafosse's The White Knights may take place across the vast plains of Africa but is no less tense, restrictive and naturalistic filmmaking from one of the most prominent rising stars of European cinema.

Released a week apart in the UK, the Belgian director's latter project may have been completed a year before the former but features as a real standout of the 2016 French Film Festival UK. Screen notes, acting as a disclaimer of sorts, state that The White Knights is 'Loosely based on real events' but this Vincent Lindon-led film is ostensibly a fictionalised retelling of the 2007 case of Zoe's Ark charity workers who were charged with abducting children from Chad in order to place them with foster families in France.
