Sons of Ramses

Goutte D'Or

63rd TIFF: Greek Premiere

Ramses is a skillful clairvoyant in the multicultural Parisian district of La Goutte d’Or. When a gang of fearless kids start terrorizing the locals, the balance of his thriving business and of the whole neighborhood is disturbed. Until one day, when Ramses has a real vision... Combining supernatural and criminal elements alike as cover to sneak deeper into this vibrant, little-known community, the awarded director tells a thrilling and moving urban tale that questions themes of belief and blood ties.
