Black Poirot

Experimental Film United Kingdom 2021
By: Rosa-Johan Uddoh

Rosa-Johan Uddoh’s film BLACK POIROT is a 20-minute ride on the Orientalised-Other Express. It investigates a crime no one can remember, explores an internalized struggle with latent respectability politics, and features a special guest appearance from Édouard Glissant, in the role that could have defined him. Appropriating Agatha Christie’s popular Poirot detective novels, the work uses a well-known format to tell a not-so-well known history, while satirizing the current trend for tokenistic casting practices.
