L’ŒIL IMPÉRATIF

THE IMPERATIVE EYE

The film is a visual essay that analyzes the political, economic and representation mechanisms which perpetuate the imprint of colonialism and neocolonialism in the former Spanish-French protectorates of northern Africa through migration policies, commercialism, globalization and cultural, aesthetic and social imperialism. A cross reflection on the role that the regime of visuality acquires within the colonial and neocolonial processes.
