Black As Me
I wrote and directed a short documentary produced by ArenaMedia about Melbourne artist, Atong Atem's struggle growing up dark skinned in Australia. It was funded by Screen Australia and News Limited.
The Australian Centre for the Moving Image, ACMI, described it as "a confronting exploration of colourism, somehow made lovely by the skilful creative team"
The film received a theatrical release at ACMI and has gone on to screen at the Human Rights Arts and Film Festival, The St Kilda Short Film Festival and the Australian Festival of African Film.
