Erzulie

Director Christine Chen, USA - 82 min. 


Four friends reunite at the riverside Pont Laveau in South Louisiana, to relax and reconnect. One of the friends, Wendy, convinces the others to join her in summoning the legendary water goddess, Erzulie, to ask for her blessings and protection. Together the women cast a spell, but the plan falls short of Wendy's promises and Erzulie fails to appear. The next day they encounter a mysterious stranger who secretly steps in to defend them when an unhinged ex-boyfriend follows the group to the camp. A series of harrowing clues leads the women to discover not only the body of the ex-boyfriend but straight to a face to face encounter with the goddess Erzulie in her true form, that of a fearsome bayou mermaid.
