Indians in France
Laure Moutoussamy – Actress and writer from Martinique
Laure Moutoussamy left Martinique, French West Indies, in the 1970s to Paris to complete her studies but quickly stopped after joining the cinema industry. She got small roles in popular movies directed by Lelouch or De Broca, and drama plays until a chance for a bigger exposure in « La Reine Blanche » with famous actors Catherine Deneuve and Bernard Giraudeau. After few years, facing difficulties to find interesting roles, she started to write fictions. The trilogy about Singapouli-Moutou, an Indian immigrant who settled in Martinique at the end of 19th century, put the light on this not-known community.
