Black As Me (2017)
Black As Me is the stunning short documentary from Zambian-born, Melbourne-based filmmaker and journalist Santilla Chingaipe (Date My Race, SBS World News). Based on an essay by featured artist Atong Atem, the three-minute film explores a moment in the artist's young life where she became aware of her blackness and what it meant in Australian society. It's a confronting exploration of Australia's relationship to blackness, somehow made lovely by the skillful creative team.
