Furcy

For over 25 years, from 1817 to 1843, Furcy, who was officially considered a slave on Bourbon Island (the former name of Reunion Island), fought to get the highest court in the Kingdom of France to recognize his status as a free man. The most amazing part of the story is that he won. There is no other known case anywhere in the world in which an enslaved person sued his master in order to regain his freedom. Just a few years after the verdict was returned at the Royal Court of Paris recognizing Furcy’s freedom, slavery was abolished in all French colonies. How is it possible that Furcy won? What kind of man was he? What does his story have to tell us two centuries later? The documentary will explore the life of this exceptional man. Added September 8, 2021

French Decolonizations - Part 1

With over 45 countries and territories involved across all five continents, three decades of claims, struggles, hopes and disillusions and over half a billion people still bearing this legacy today, French decolonization is one of the major shocks of the 20th century. However this key historical episode remains largely unknown and confrontational, burdened by the weight of prejudices, violence, crime, guilt and nostalgia. Through the voice of the last witnesses having experienced the events firsthand, but also through the testimony of their descendants who today are the bearers of this memory, our account will focus on the human dimension to offer for the first time a global synthesis of a shared heritage which still remains sensitive.
