Femmes, entièrement femmes


One day, Julie heard voices threatening her. Doctors gave her electric shocks, marabouts tried to exorcise her, she swallowed lots of medicine, drank a whole bunch of potions, spent days in the hospital and long hours locked up at home trying to forget the past and imagine the future. Administratively speaking, she has been 80% mentally handicapped since her first hospitalization. In my eyes, 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 plunge into her past and discover the story of a heroine.
