Following its UK premiere at the 63rd BFI London Film Festival last week, Netflix has now released a new trailer for director Mati Diop‘s feature narrative debut, ATLANTICS, out in UK cinemas on 22 November and on Netflix on 29 November 2019.

Written by Mati Diop and Olivier Demangel, the film stars Mama Sané, Amadou Mbow, Ibrahima Traoré, Nicole Sougou, Amina Kane, Mariama Gassama, Coumba Dieng, Ibrahima Mbaye, and Diankou Sembene.

ATLANTICS won the Grand Prix award at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival and has been selected as Senegal’s official entry for the best international feature film at the 92nd Academy Awards.

After a group of unpaid construction workers disappears at sea one night in search of a better life abroad, the women they have left behind in Dakar are overwhelmed with a mysterious fever.  Ada, 17, secretly grieves for her love Souleiman, one of the departed workers, but she has been promised to another man. After a fire breaks out on her wedding night, a young policeman is sent to investigate the crime. Little does he know that the aggrieved workers have come back as haunting, possessive spirits.  While many of them seek vengeance for their unpaid labor, Souleiman has come back for a different purpose – to be with his Ada one last time.
