Amandine Gay

Amandine Gay divides her time between research, creation and activism. In 2017, she released Speak Up, her first film that gives voice to twenty-four French-speaking Afro-descendant women. In 2021, she directed a second documentary, A story of One’s Own, an archive film on international adoption from the point of view of five adoptees. She is frequently invited to give talks on afrofeminism, intersectionality or adoption. Her first book, A chocolate doll, was published in France (La Découverte) and in Quebec (Remue-Ménage) in 2021. In this autobiographical essay, she draws on tools from sociology and on her personal experience to deconstruct the humanitarian and moral approach on transracial and transnational adoption and analyse these practices from a political standpoint.
