Dust on 35mm
Institute of Contemporary Arts
Dust, dir. Marion Hänsel, Belgium, France 1985, 88 min

Magda (Jane Birkin) is the unwed daughter of a white South African farmer (Trevor Howard). Spending much of her time looking after her father, Magda leads an uneventful and isolated life, largely avoiding other people. However, that changes when Magda discovers that her father has been having an affair with one of the farm's African workers. Unable to handle the revelation that her dad has a mistress, Magda takes surprisingly drastic and violent action. 

Marion Hänsel's adaptation of J.M. Coetzee's In the Heart of the Country, stars Jane Birkin in one of her best roles. Screening on a 35mm print from the ICA archive.
