  • Un témoignage nécessaire qui nous incite à regarder au-delà du statut de victime. Clemantine Wamariya livre une histoire poignante et inspirante qui signale l'importance de chaque existence et la puissance du récit.
    Rwanda, 1994. Clemantine a six ans lorsqu'elle doit fuir les massacres avec sa grande soeur Claire. Sans nouvelles de leur famille, déplacées de camps de réfugiés en camps de réfugiés, elles affrontent la faim, la soif, la misère et la cruauté pendant six ans avant d'arriver aux États-Unis.
    À Chicago, Clemantine est recueillie par un couple aisé et découvre soudain une toute autre réalité. Projetée dans un véritable rêve américain, l'adolescente est pourtant plus perdue que jamais. Une question s'impose alors : comment se reconstruire et donner un sens à son histoire après avoir vécu l'enfer ?
    Sincère, urgent et bouleversant, La Fille au sourire de perles examine la question de l'identité et de l'appartenance, des cicatrices laissées par un traumatisme, mais aussi du rapport à l'autre quand celui-ci ne voit en vous qu'une victime.
    Un témoignage actuel et plus que jamais nécessaire.
