Heretic Outreach Acquires “Petit Samedi” Berlinale Forum title

Heretic Outreach is proud to announce the addition of the documentary PETIT SAMEDI (Belgium), the feature film debut of the director Paloma Sermon-Daï, produced by Sébastien Andres and Alice Lemaire (Michigan Films, Belgium).

Damien Samedi is a hard-working man, a loving son and a caring boyfriend. He’s also been struggling with a drug addiction most of his adult life, counting on his mother’s matter-of-fact, yet unwavering support. Mixing unexpected moments of humour, insight and compassion, their tender mother-son relationship is at the heart of his challenging journey.

At once an intimate character study and a much-needed humane counter to the shockingly one-sided, fear-mongering depictions of addiction prevalent in today’s media, “Petit Samedi” is the universally relatable, life-affirming portrait of a man facing his demons.

The film world premieres at the 70th Berlin International Film Festival.
