Black History Studies presents the West London Premiere screening of The Psychosis of Whiteness on Thursday 11th July 2019 @ Lexi Cinema
A flim by Eugene Nulman and Kehinde Andrews.
Join us for the West London premiere of The Psychosis of Whiteness, directed by Eugene Nulman and based on the paper of the same title by Kehinde Andrews.
The Psychosis of Whiteness sheds light on society’s perceptions of race and racism by exploring cinematic representations of the slave trade. This documentary takes an in-depth look at big budget films that focus on the transatlantic slave trade and, using a wealth of sources and interviews, it argues that these depictions are metaphoric hallucinations about race. Rather than blaming the powerful institutions that are responsible for slavery, these films rewrite history by praising those same institutions for abolishing the slave trade.
