Europe's racial make-up is quickly changing. French-Algerian filmmaker Yamina Benguigui is hoping to start a conversation about affirmative action, a policy that does not exist in France today. Benguigui's GLASS CEILING presents a series of sometimes very emotional first-hand accounts of discrimination against mostly black and North African Arab who are trying to find jobs. The documentary offers poingnant and reveiling accounts of discrimination faced by these full-fledged French citizens who are also children of immigrant parents.
