What is it to be Black in France? Black and French? Mariannes Noires follows seven French women of African and Caribbean descent. They are filmmakers, dancers, entrepreneurs and intellectuals whose Frenchness is rooted in a cultural space stretching from metropolitan France, to the United States, to Africa and its many diasporas. The documentary is a mosaic of seven narratives that raise the veil on the challenges of French diversity and the construction of afrodiasporic identities.
