Lecture du cinéma caribéen féminin francophone. L’activisme nègre et féministe de Euzhan Palcy

Abstract : In Martinique Euzhan Palcy is an icon. Beyond the shores of her native island, the woman has become a myth. Indeniably, she has been met with international acclaim, though the hurdles she faced throughout her career, her gender, heritage and age at the time can only conjure the concept of intersectionnality as developed by Kimberley Crenshaw. The commitment to the Black Diaspora she claims, is the underpinning of her narrative, thematic choices, as well as her early collaborations with african directors. Rooted in personal life experiences, this stated aspect of her otherwise complex creative work, require that analytical barriers between a critical approach to cinema and films be lifted, in order to shed light on both the stakes and the intricate signifying of her work. It is possible to infer from Euzhan Palcy’s body of work the making of trends that define a French Caribbean Cinema. Are there, if so what are, the underlying issues and diverse aesthetics biases of 21st century caribbean directors ?
