The film navigates themes of racism, nationalism, enslavement, and stereotypes in popular culture and media to seek redemption through the entanglements of anguish, vengeance, and care. While a trenchant indictment of the blood-stained hands of all those—past and present—who know what they’ve done, “Saint Leroi” is ultimately an expression of belonging, utter grief, and radical love.
“Saint Leroi” centers on a Black avenging angel seeking justice and retribution amidst ceaseless anti-Black violence and oppression in the United States.
