Our memory, Johanna Makabi

The films in this program compose a series of sensitive, but above all hospitable portraits. We are invited into the intimacy of an encounter that goes beyond the simple pictorial representation of a person and develops in all the materiality of an archive: spaces, objects, contexts and details. Victoire Karera Kampire [accompanies with all the depth of a woman's look (woman gaze) the deceased Alberta Gay, in a moving gesture of sisterhood]. Johanna Makabi goes back in time in an impossible interview with M'Bissine T. Diop, actress of La Noire de... (Ousmane Sembène, 1966), and establishes a relationship of filiation in reverse of memory loss. In the most intimate film which also becomes poetically universal, Annabelle Aventurin captures, one video at a time, the fragments received from her grandmother's thought, just as we build a never-ending and ever-precious collection. 



Alberta's Room is a journey through Alberta Gay's dreams and nightmares. The film returns to the tragic fate of a pop icon and explores the female perspective of a drama described as a man's affair. Alberta's Room is an experimental film, halfway between documentary and fiction, about absence and mourning.



Mbissine Thérèse Diop was the main actress in Ousmane Sembène's first film, La Noire de... Young film student of Senegalese origin, I discovered her face on the big screen. We look back together on her experience as a black actress in the 1960s.



Author of “Sunny Karukera, Guadeloupe Failed” (1980), Elzéa Foule Aventurin engages, in 2017, in a series of interviews with her granddaughter. Together they trace, not without malice, a family history, sailing from one end of the black Atlantic to the other. A story made up of silences, pride and revolt.
