But You’re Not Black: This Short Doc is Redefining the Correlation between Race, Colour and Culture

BUT YOU’RE NOT BLACK is a short documentary that shines a light on how society’s conceptions of culture and heritage are often perceived based entirely on someone’s visible race — and the impact that can have on an individual’s sense of identity. This film challenges and redefines the correlation between race, skin colour and culture.

The film follows Danielle, a descendant of Chinese-Caribbean parents who was born and raised in Toronto, as she answers the common question “what’s your background” by traveling back to Trinidad.

Danielle and her team are currently fundraising for production costs in order to complete the film and use it to promote inclusivity, empathy and diversity in film. Learn more about the Kickstarter campaign for BUT YOU’RE NOT BLACK and support here.
