Black History Studies presents the SOUTH LONDON PREMIERE of 'The Psychosis of Whiteness'

A flim by Eugene Nulman and Kehinde Andrews.

Join us for the South London premiere of The Psychosis of Whiteness, directed by Eugene Nulman and based on the paper of the same title by Kehinde Andrews. The screening will be followed by a discussion withe the film makers.

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.
