Summary Given France's large colonial influence in Africa, Pria samples the African diaspora in Paris, asking why they are more French than African and why France is perceived to have been a "better coloniser" than the rest. Pria talks to Malian singer Rokia Traore, Cameroonian author Calixte Beyala; Euro MP Fode Sylla; student Romuald Nkongo; writer and art critic Simon Njami and former French Prime Minister Michel Rocard. (An SBS-TV production, in English and French, English subtitles)
