Description: A cargo ship is stuck on the Canadian Saint Lawrence River for repairs. Traoré, an Ivory Coast mechanic is unjustly accused of causing the damage. Far away from home and family, Traoré tries to offer friendship to Fanny, a twenty-something single mother who takes him in, while he struggles to fight for justice. Diego Star is a beautifully filmed social drama about a world in which workers are regarded as collateral damage. Coming to ArtPower! audiences after premiering at the 2013 Rotterdam International Film Festival, Frédérick Pelletier's debut feature is a refreshingly unpredictable and urgently topical tale of exploitation and resistance that furthers Québécois cinema's hot streak. [Frédérick Pelletier, 2013, Canada, 91 min]
