Paris, France | 2018
Role: Co-Cinematographer, Assistant Editor
During the trial of a police officer who killed a young man of Arab descent in France, the victim’s sister, Amal Bentounsi, 41, and others look to the African American civil rights movement for inspiration as they build a movement to combat institutionalized racism against immigrants in France.
The feature documentary chronicles the resistance of activists who rejected victimhood fueled by the desire to empower their community. Still, critics continued to categorize that activism as “victimization” and to block those voices out.
