Too Black to be French
France | 2015 | 52 minutes | Color | DVD | French | Subtitled | Order No. 161189
TOO BLACK TO BE FRENCH is a compelling documentary that discloses, in a frank and honest way, a rarely seen example of racism outside of the U.S. Focusing on the popular debate about racism as it relates to nationality, colorism and classism, the filmmaker’s attempt to discover her own French roots takes the viewer along on her journey. Addressed from this very personal perspective makes the experience that much more captivating, yet alarming.
