Organized by Frédéric Viguier and film director Isabelle Boni-Claverie ("Trop noire pour être française").
This three-day film festival will explore changing representations of blackness in French cinema through a cross-disciplinary approach. The festival will include screenings of different kinds of films from different periods and regions: documentaries, features, and shorts — many of them rarely available in the U.S. Themes will include early representations of black French people, housing projects, and African-Americans in France. Roundtables will bring together directors, producers, actors, and scholars from France, the U.S., and elsewhere.
