Black Amazons at Alliance Française Cine Kweyol


Cine-Kweyol at Alliance-Francaise de Saintte Lucie, presents on Wednesday October 31, 2012, Trinidadian Calypso Rose, Jocelyne Beroard from Martinique, Emeline Michel from Haiti, Stevy Mahy from Guadeloupe, the Franco-Benin Mina Agossi, Bahamian Diana Hamilton and Martha Galarraga from Cuba. These and other Amazons drawn from the several voices of the Caribbean belong to the vibrant heart of “Moi noire, feminin pluriel, portraits of Amazones” (My black female plural, portraits of Amazons), a musical documentary exploring the famous “Afro-Caribbean woman”.

The film examines women in all their diversity, women in the process of artistic creation, women as a symbol of African, European and Caribbean societies, female figures in the Caribbean feeding myths and mythologies.

From the 2010 edition of “Caribbean Vibrations Festival” called “Amazons”, the documentary directed by Michel Laurent, Pippin Champonnois in collaboration with Coline-Lee Toumson, invites the audience to catch the cultural and artistic impact of these women; their presence, their footstep and their voices.

The film will begin at 6:30 pm at The Pyramid, Pointe Seraphine.
