AfriKaleidoskop - "Mariannes Noires"
2021-06-21 18:00 (CES)
As part of the film and discussion series "AfriKaleidoskop" the Africa Multiple Cluster of Excellence invites the interested public to watch the streaming of the movie "Mariannes Noires" and join in the subsequent discussion.
Recent violence and growing nationalism in France have brought fierce debates about the country's identity to the forefront. In this documentary, seven different French-born women of African descent confront their own unique identities and challenge the expectations of French society. They take us through their battles and retrace their most grueling paths in order to understand the social confines that have affected them professionally, psychologically, and emotionally.
They share their ideas and solutions to France's most daunting issues at the heavy intersection of racism and misogyny, and they bravely lead the way forward.
"Mariannes Noires" was directed, produced and edited by Mame-Fatou Niang and Kaytie Nielsen who will be present for the streaming and subsequent discussion.
