SERGEANT JAMES

France, 2017 (MIFF 2017, Virtual Reality)

Director: Alexandre Perez

It’s Leo’s bedtime, but he thinks there’s something under his bed. Is it just the harmless imagination of a young boy, or something more sinister? Is it … you?

Sergeant James recaptures the innocence of youth, the wonder of the unknown, the folly of fear and the terrifying possibility that things are far creepier than they seem.
