FRANCE | 90 minutes | 2020


Fed up to the teeth with the lily-white face of his society and doing his best to organize a BLM-style protest: French rap star, stand-up comic and TV personality Jean-Pascal Zadi is on a mission in this bold, biting satire that puts systemic racism on the hot seat. Edgy, unfiltered and rocking every conceivable boat, Tout simplement noir, with its cast of French stars from diverse backgrounds, is a brilliant, joyous reminder that you can laugh, think and stick it to The Man all at once . . . and all together. Essential viewing for our times!

« [...] agit comme un révélateur de faux-semblants. Zadi est un universaliste dans l’âme, son film nous montre que la connerie n’a ni couleur ni frontière. » Le Monde

« Un état des lieux des identités noires en France en forme de comédie qui n'hésite pas à mettre les pieds dans le plat. [...] un exercice d’autodérision et de performance réflexive qui nous a pris de court [...] le film est à la hauteur du moment. » Les Inrockuptibles

With the support of the French general consulate in Quebec
