This introductory essay addresses the reception of The Cathedral (2006) by filmmaker Harrikrisna Anenden. It focuses on the way in which the visualized Creole culture translates and transmits a specific Mauritian way of life that appeals to a global spectatorship. The essay is followed by an interview with the director who speaks about the process of cinematic adaptation of the short story La Cathdrale (1977) by Ananda Devi. He explains the challenges he faced during the production of his first feature film in Mauritius.
