The Feast of All Saints


Anne Rice’s The Feast of All Saints is a tale set in 1840’s New Orleans about “free people of color”, who formed their own class at a time when the predominant role of blacks in society was as slaves. The film focuses on the ordeal of one young man named Marcel Ste. Marie (Ri’chard), who searches for the truth about his heritage. As he finds his individual path into the future, Marcel is fully aware that he is a child of African and European descent, but his story is uniquely American.
