PORNOTROPIC, MARGUERITE DURAS ET L'ILLUSION COLONIALE
No upcoming broadcast (for now).
1950. Marguerite Duras published "The Sea Wall" and came close to winning the Prix Goncourt. But, as France faced its first military defeats in Indochina, how could they reward someone for writing a story of colonial disillusion? A damming indictment, her work continues to resonate in today's postcolonial debate.
Directed by: Valérie Urréa, Nathalie Masduraud (France, 2020)
