Les Enfants du Blanc

Sarah Bouyain. 2000. Burkina Faso, France. vo French. 60’

“My grandmother was born in what is now Burkina Faso, as a result of an encounter between a French soldier and a young African woman. The discovery of the unique fate of the mixed-race minority to which she belongs, as they were separated from their mothers, abandoned by their fathers and finally confined in orphanages, returns me to my own mixed-race identity.”
