Summary An 8-year-old black child named Victoria is taken in for a night by the wealthy, white, well-intentioned family of one of her schoolmates. The experience haunts her for years to come, shaping her desires and offering a mirage of privilege that she dreams of but finds impossible to attain. As an adult, she drifts from job to job, but then unexpectedly reconnects with the family’s youngest son in an encounter that will reshape her life yet again. Adapted from Nobel laureate Doris Lessing’s story, Director Jean-Paul Civeyrac relocates the story from London to Paris to craft a probing and intimate look at the politics of race and class identity. Nominated for Outstanding Foreign Film at the **Black Reel Awards**. *"MY FRIEND VICTORIA has a specific vibrancy as delicate and understated as Lessing's social critique." - Scott Tobias, **Village Voice***
