“A touching and lucid Afro-feminist documentary, showing how racist clichés are thick skinned”

Les Inrockuptibles

“As radically frank in style as in substance, [...] a film of experience and of reflection. It is both a vital film in itself and a virtual kit for the inspiration of other filmmakers; it’s an opening of voices and of paths”

The New Yorker
