Juliette Binoche recounts the life and death of Rose Lokissim, a prisoner of Hissène Habré, dictator in Chad from 1982 to 1990. Opposed to the dictatorship, arrested, imprisoned, and tortured, Rose proves courageous and indomitable. Parler de Rose is a tribute to her memory and a dark portrait of life under Habré. The film is especially poignant given Habré’s recent conviction for crimes against humanity.
