“Safe Keeping”….Exclusive Clip from Erik Poppe’s 1,000 Times Goodnight

1,000 Times Goodnight Erik Poppe

In this exclusive clip from Erik Poppe’s new film 1,000 Times Goodnight, (Film Movement 10.24) Juliette Binoche’s character, Rebecca, is in Kenya on an expedition with her daughter (Lauryn Canny). Presumed to be in a peaceful area, the camp that Rebecca and her daughter had been photographing comes under siege from a faction of militants that begin executing civilians. Leading her daughter to safety, it is at this moment where we understand that Rebecca is unable to flee from intense situations even if this endangers her own safety, a key theme in the film’s exploration between the difficulty of balancing work and family life.
