Boni-Claverie, Isabelle

Isabelle Boni-Claverie is a film and television screenwriter and director. She wrote and directed the documentary Too Black to Be French?, which was a hit as soon as it broadcasted on French television on July 2015. She has written a book of the same title. Enriched with family, historical and political anecdotes, this more personal version was published in August 2017. From mainstream series to auteur films, Isabelle’s award-winning audiovisual path reflects her cultural plurality – an advantage that is not necessarily recognized in France, which often fails to see its black citizens as truly French.
