France, Mauritania, Fiction, 1970, 104′

The director and actor from Mauritania, Med Hondo, surprised the world of cinema with his first film (Golden Leopard at Locarno), shot over four years and with a low budget. It is the struggle of a Mauritian emigrant in Paris, facing precarious work conditions, discriminatory paying, humiliation and indifference. An original manifesto, echoing cinema verité, eisensteinian montage, satire and the absurd.
