From the exhibition “Téléphone arabe” to the web documentary “On se la raconte!” From the exhibition “Téléphone arabe” to the web documentary “On se la raconte!”

The NGO Remembeur organized a travelling exhibition entitled Téléphone Arabe (French equivalent to “Chinese Whispers”). Leaning on humor and irony, it describes everyday racism and the way in which stereotypes and encompassing overviews racialize individuals categorized as Arabs or Blacks. The last step of the exhibition’s path was a film studio where the visitors could go, react to the exhibition and talk about their own lived experience. The recording of these stories from everyday life gave the Web documentary “On se la raconte” (which may be translated by “Let’s show off” to keep the pun conveying both pride and the idea that something is said and shown).

 On 27 January 2017 , the research program Global-Race was happy to welcome the film director, Nassima Guessoun and the founder of Remembeur, Ali Guessoum. A work session followed the screening of a draft version of the web documentary to discuss on the filmmaking.

Special issue: Contemporary Perspectives on Race in the United States (edited by Daniel Sabbagh)

The issue of race in the United States is just as topical as ever, as reflected both in the emergence of the ’Black Lives Matter’ movement - in response to instances of police brutality too frequent and too serious to be dismissed as isolated incidents - and to the surprising victory in November 2016 of a presidential candidate who had made disparaging statements about Hispanics. Those recent events have triggered a great many comments. Yet they are only the most striking evidence of the persistence of race as a multidimensional problem, a problem addressed by the complementary contributions by Juliette Galonnier, Ann MorningDaniel Sabbagh and Richard Thompson Ford, brought together in the following symposium.
