Like a multi-layered collective story, Composées immerses itself in the director’s quest for identity in the face of the conflicting relationship she’s had since childhood with her own mixed-race identity. She revisits her childhood archive videos and meets with eight other women in order to explore the heart of the torn identity that they all experience on a daily basis. Through poetic, intimate and sensory imagery, Composées plunges to the heart of the universal need of belonging.
