DIRECTOR: KATHE SANDLER

Intro and Q&A with Kathe Sandler, moderated by Michelle Materre.

Of this, one of the best docs of the decade, filmmaker Sandler writes, “I wanted to shed light on a recurring theme in human relations: how opposed people adapt and internalize the very views their oppressor has used to oppress them... that issues of color consciousness are also real for other people of color—in the Caribbean, in Africa, in Latin America, and in Asia­—who have experienced similair forms of domination. I also wanted to tackle the intersection of gender and color: the position of men over women that seems to further oppress and divide black women.”
