“The original idea was to show tourist spots packed with blacks only,” says Soleil Ô director Med Hondo. “All of a sudden you would see Sacré-Cœur, and you would see only blacks. It would have had a powerful cinematographic impact. But the idea remained on paper and wasn’t translated into images.” The French-Mauritanian curiosity is “a series of stylized set pieces that audaciously combine documentary, satire, and folklore.” Shot over four years with the tiniest of budgets, this freshly restored 1970 drama chronicles the life of a North African migrant facing unemployment and indifference in France.
