Sarah Maldoror – Scala Milan AC (2003)

A group of young people from the St. Denis banlieu, from different ethnic and geographic backgrounds, participate in a school contest to tell their neighborhood, whose prize is a trip to Milan. With the collaboration of the historical jazz musician Archie Shepp, they create a poetic hymn to the racialized and invisible France that rises above marginalization. The film, also produced by another filmmaker, Agnès Varda, is a collaboration on its own bill between the filmmaker and teenagers.

  1. Agreed! Lovely film. Archie Shepp is such a warm presence. This film makes me think of Mambety’s The Little Girl Who Sold the Sun (La petite vendeuse de soleil) in a lot of ways. Wouldn’t know a thing about this Maldoror film if it wasn’t for Worldscinema.org. Thank you.

  2. Magnificent stuff and a real gem this one… and with the still living (free)jazz legend Archie Shepp, an absolute favorite of mine! One can’t ask for more, thank you.
