Watch The Opening Scene From Nicolas Provost's THE INVADER
Following a string of hugely acclaimed short films Belgian director Nicolas Provost makes his feature debut with The Invader, a film that skewers the racial fears of white Europe and pushes them to the extremes in a tragic satire.
Twitch is proud to present a selection of stills and the audacious opening scene from Provost's film below. And if this scene is an indication this one is sure to get people talking.Amadou, a strong and charismatic African man, is washed up on a beach in southern Europe. Fate leads him to Brussels where, full of optimism, he tries to make a better life for himself. Exploited by traffickers, his daily life is slowly drained of hope, until he meets Agnès, a beautiful and brilliant businesswoman.
She is seduced by his charm and force of character, while he projects all his hope and dreams onto her. The illusion quickly shatters, and Agnès breaks all contact with Amadou, who little by little sinks into destructive violence, struggling with his inner demons.
