FRA | 2020 | dir. Jean-Paul Salomé with Isabelle Huppert, Hippolyte Girardot, Liliane Rovere

“Jean-Paul Salomé signs a cheerful and sassy comedy (…) the high-grade of the popular French comedy, well written and well performed” – Le Monde

A French-Arabic police translator (Isabelle Huppert) specialises in phone tapping for the anti-narcotics unit. The job is tough and low-paid, but the Chief Inspector is charming. One day, while listening in to drug dealers, she discovers that one of them is the son of her mother’s devoted carer. She decides to protect him and infiltrates a huge drug trafficking network. When she discovers a huge haul of cannabis, she uses the opportunity to her advantage, becoming the Mama Weed in the title.

The Opening screening on 4 Nov will be followed by a pre-recorded Q&A with director Jean-Paul Salomé
