JULIE ON LINE

Femmes, entièrement femmes

SUMMARY

One day, Julie heard voices threatening her. Doctors gave her electroshocks, marabouts tried to exorcise her, she ingested many medicines, drank a lot of potions, spent days in the hospital and long hours locked up at home trying to forget the past and imagine the future. From an administrative point of view, she is 80% mentally disabled since her first hospitalization. To me, she is a precious friend, a sensitive soul, a fighter who decided that she would not make "a career as a victim". I have been filming her for five years. Together, we dive into her past and discover the story of a heroine.
