Tori and Lokita

Opens Friday, March 24, 2023

Tickets available by 6pm on Tuesday March 21

The Dardennes’ gripping new film is the story of two young African immigrants fighting to gain a foothold in a new country. Teenagers Tori and Lokita (beautifully played by first-time actors Pablo Schils and Joely Mbundu) met and bonded on their dangerous trip to Europe. Fiercely protective of each other and determined to stay together, they’ve decided to pose as siblings. But while waiting to be granted asylum, the pair are forced to take desperate measures, and events soon spin out of their control.

“The Dardennes’ strongest, most dramatically persuasive film in years.”– Manohla Dargis, New York Times
