la blessure

The Wound is the story of Blandine, an African woman who experiences prejudice and brutality at the hands of the state when she attempts to emigrate to France. A poetic, poignant and beautifully composed work, The Wound is a convincing portrait of the injustices black immigrants face as they seek homes in the West.
