Synopsis
On the island of Tahiti, De Roller, the High Commissioner of the Republic in French Polynesia, represents a long history of colonialism that he navigates with abandon, until rumours start circulating that France is resuming its nuclear tests in the islands. Following The Death of Louis XIV (41st), Catalan provocateur Serra finds in this unlikely official a new decadent figure to add to his historical rogue’s gallery. Pacifiction also breaks new ground, enveloping us in the haze of an oneiric political thriller. In Competition, Cannes.
