COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

Qu’est-ce qu’être "noire" ? Dans une perspective intersectionnelle, la réalisatrice dresse le portrait de cinq femmes racisées dans le Sud-Est mexicain. Les protagonistes, dans une volonté d’empowerment, partagent leurs stratégies d’autodéfense et de résistance face aux stéréotypes et à la violence. De manière très subtile, ce film expose la construction du racisme et en dénonce ses conséquences.

I was about seven years old the first time someone called me “black” on the street. I turned around to see who they were talking to, until I realized it was me. That day I understood I was black, and the laughter it caused among the people nearby made me think being a black person wasn’t that great… Was this only happening to me? Or did it happen to other black women? Negra shows the director in her search of exploring what it means to inhabit Mexico as a black woman. It tells the story of five afro-descendant women from southern Mexico, exposing racism, resistance and processes of self-acceptance, strategies for transcending stereotypes, and the celebration of their identity.
