The French film Le bonheur D'Elza, directed by Mariette Monpierre, is nominated for the French "Trophées des Arts Afro-Caribéens (FAAC) 2011" ("Afro-Caribbean Arts Awards") in the category Cinema.
The awards ceremony will be held at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris France on September 12.
A single mother in Paris, Bernadette tried hard to give her daughters everything. She is thrilled when her eldest, Elza, the first college graduate in the family, completes her master's degree summa cum laude. But, Elza breaks her mother's heart by running away to their native Guadeloupe in search of a distant childhood memory: the father she barely remembers.
This feature debut by writer/director Mariette Monpierre offers an unusual insider's view of lush island culture as she captures the passion and contradictions of this family.
