Giving a face to the conflict: Contemporary representations of women in Franco-North African film
This study examines the allegorization of women in Franco-North African film of the 1990s and 2000s. It argues that these contemporary representations trap women between hyper- and disembodiment, with the narration of their subjectivity becoming predicated upon the social violence enacted upon their bodies. Allegory is shown to be a product of the film’s form and narrative, but also a result of its production and reception.
