Mariannes noires

Synopsis

Recent violence and growing nationalism in France have brought fierce debates about the country’s identity to the forefront. In Mariannes noires, seven different French-born women of African descent confront their own unique identities and challenge the expectations of French society. In this documentary, 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.
