FFDD21: Tribute Mati Diop
Mati Diop made history in 2019 when she became the first Person of Colour to win a top prize at the Cannes International Film Festival. The Senegalese-French director and actress has since been considered a star of global arthouse cinema - right now she is a jury member at the Film Festival in Cannes.
Her atmospheric films are characterised by their own signature and visual language. They poetically tell relevant stories about postcolonialism and build bridges between different cultures.
