National Identity

Synopsis

France, hailed as being the birthplace of human rights, is a far cry from respecting them when it comes to its contemporary judicial system-functioning differently pending on whether you are rich or poor, and most of all: a French citizen … or not.

Foreigners in France account for 18% of the prison population.

What does this figure hide?

National Identity takes us on an analytic journey into French Institutional racism.
It articulates testimonies of foreigners just relieved from prison whose countries of origin are former colonies with analysis of politicians, judges, lawyers and academics.
