Feature film ‘Cuties’

She wrote Cuties, her debut feature film, in early 2017.

The film was inspired by Doucoure’s tale as a refugee girl, a traditional Senegalese Muslim girl stuck and pulled between two distinct fortunes, traditional values, and internet culture, as well as her discussion of the hypersexualization of pre-adolescent females.

Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos apologized to Doucouré and deleted the poster from the platform.
