Female filmmakers: A new generation

Even though the position of women in the film industry has evolved over the past years favoring equality, especially in France, much work is left to be done. The Institut français presents a selection of first and second films directed by French and African women in order to make room for their views on our society. A collection of films to challenge misconceptions, prejudices and to support the artistic legitimacy of a new generation.
