Director Isabelle Simeoni discusses and showcases extracts from “Melanin”, a documentary she co-directed with Aïssa Maïga that seeks solutions for a better inclusion and diversity in creative industries and its impact on society, through the experience of black actresses worldwide. In the film, Aïssa Maïga, award-nominated French actress of African descent, rallies directors, artists, decision-makers, experts and scientists, in a conversation that takes us on an inspiring venture from France, USA and Brazil, to transcend today’s outlook on ethnicity for prospective generations. Isabelle is joined by Sabine Pakora and Karidja Touré, two of the documentary’s actresses for the discussion.
