From 1889 to our days - 130 years of shared history

This three-part documentary film weaves together many archives and new testimonies to tell us about the contemporary French black history over 130 years. This film gives a voice to both the protagonists and the heirs of this history and relays the building of a French Black identity. An old history, a presence which becomes visible with the 1889 World's Fair. A story which goes through two World wars, the colonial period, the Independencies, and the time of the migrations from the West Indies and Africa, but also from the Indian Ocean, New Caledonia, and from the African American influence since the Interwar period.

Directed by Juan Gélas. 2011, France, 3x52'
