2016 LHAAFF SATURDAY II - TOO BLACK TO BE FRENCH?
TOO BLACK TO BE FRENCH? Directed by Isabelle Boni-Claverie French with English subtitles. Documentary. 52 min.
In this documentary film, Isabelle Boni-Claverie explores the role of race and the persistence of racism in France, as well as the impact of the French colonial past. The film peels back the layers of race relations in supposedly institutionally colorblind France. Boni-Claverie, a French-Ivorian, who grew up in upper class French society, unpacks how socio-economic privilege doesnt mean protection from racial discrimination. In interviews, people speak of their daily experiences with race, class, discrimination and micro-aggressions. Interviews with acclaimed sociologists and historians including Pap Ndiaye, Eric Fassin, Achille Mbembe, and Patrick Simon help contextualize racial history in France. http://www.boniclaverie.com/
