Afro Prairie Film Festival: Ouvrir La Voix (Speak Up/Make Your Way)

Fri, Feb 23 / 7 pm
Directed by Amandine Gay
2017, France, 122 min

Introduction and Q&A with director Amandine Gay.

Ouvrir La Voix is a film about francophone European Black women from the diaspora. It showcases art performances and compelling storytelling from those who are usually spoken of or spoken for. The film focuses on our common experience related to our minority status in predominantly White ex-colonial countries, while highlighting the great diversity of our Afro-pean communities. Ouvrir La Voix aims at bringing to light our existence at the crossroad of multiple discriminations that go way beyond our “Black women” status. It is a statement from francophone European black women about why we choose to reclaim the our narrative.

Presented in Partnership with the Afro Prairie Film Festival & Black Space Winnipeg.
