Hey all, S.P.I.T. director Mtume Gant is back with his latest project; White Face: A Short Film About Our Times. Gant's latest short film is the story of New York actor Charles Rodgers - a man who hates his Black skin and all the hardship that comes with it. Feeling trapped by his race, Charles believes he has found the solution to his problems - change his appearance to embody "Whiteness" - erase all that he has ever been and join the group he's believes he should be a part of. But is this ever possible?
Check out the trailer below...
Mtume is currently trying to secure funding for post production costs in order to finalize this project.
With shades of subconcsious inspiration from what appears to be Wendall B Harris & Robert Townsend's Hollywood Shuffle (along with a lot of very real issues plaguing us today that many folks don't want to talk about), how could you not support this?
