Je suis noires

By Juliana Fanjul & Rachel M'Bon

June 2020. Crowds take to the streets of Geneva, Zurich and Lausanne to denounce systemic racism: an unprecedented occurrence in Switzerland, a country that continues to deny any association with slavery and colonial power. Touched by this sudden outpouring of solidarity, Rachel M'Bon, a mixed-race Swiss journalist accompanied by filmmaker Juliana Fanjul, sets out to meet women who speak of their quest for identity in a country apparently so tolerant.
