Speak Up is Amandine Gay’s first documentary. It gives a voice to women of African descent who converse about what it means to be a woman today while belonging to Afro communities in francophone Europe.
By sharing their experiences and aspirations for the future, these women speak up and take control again of their own representation. The screening of Speak Up will happen at the youth center ROJM. The discussion on experiences of young people of different cultural origins and living in Mechelen and how these could be translated into art will be moderated after the projection by Meryem Charkaoui, volunteer at ROJM.
