A film by Maja Kekonius
"You're white, I'm black. I come from Africa, a country that is zero. Africa has great assets, but we have given everything to Europe. Did you know that?" Kader and actor Emelie Jonsson, standing on the street outside bar Modern in Marseille. He is drunk and upset, and full of truths that are difficult to hear.
L'Europe Modern is based on the access and freedom of movement one possesses as white Scandinavian middle class. The film's protagonist is a woman, the place is Marseille. Woman because it is us. Marseille because it is a place where Europe meets Africa.
