BEST ADIFF FILM SERIES - Part III: Stories of Colorism
STORIES OF COLORISM

WHITE LIES

"[Whirimako] Black is a towering screen presence who honours not only Rotberg's and Ihimaera's creation but also the centuries-old dignity and customs of her people." Simon Foster - Screen-Space

Based on a novel by "Whale Rider" writer Witi Ihimaera, White Lies - New Zealand's entry in the 2014 Oscar competitionWhite Lies-4 for best foreign-language film - is an intense drama that explores with great humanity and sensitivity such difficult topics as race relations, bleaching and abortion.  Paraiti is the healer and midwife of her rural, tribal people  she believes in life. But new laws in force are prohibiting unlicensed healers, making the practice of much Maori medicine illegal. She gets approached by Maraea, the servant of a wealthy woman, Rebecca, who seeks her knowledge and assistance in order to hide a secret which could destroy Rebecca's position in European settler society. This compelling story tackles moral dilemmas, exploring the nature of identity, societal attitudes to the roles of women and the tension between Western and traditional Maori medicine.

Directed by Dana Rotberg, 2014, New Zealand, 96mins, Drama, English and Maori with English subt.



WHITE LIKE THE MOON

A Mexican-American girl struggles to keep her identity when her mother forces her to bleach her skin. White Like the Moon is a revealing film about a dilemma not very well known outside Latino communities; that of the myth of the light skin superiority in Indigenous and Indigenous descendant communities.

Directed by Marina Gonzalez Palmier, 2001, 23mins, USA, Drama in English
