Would You Watch This College Film Called “Dear White People?”

by on March 12, 2013

dear-white-people Justin Simien, a young Black writer and director in Hollywood, is currently producing an independent film titled Dear White People. In the trailer, which was posted to IndieWire, a group of college kids complain about stereotypical views of Blacks perpetuated by the media and accepted as truth by their fellow students.

Read the synopsis for the film below:

Remember when Black movies didn’t necessarily star a dude in a fat suit and a wig? Or have major plot twists timed to Gospel numbers for no apparent reason?

The humble producers of DEAR WHITE PEOPLE, a satire about being a black face in a white place, long to bring those days back.

The film follows four black students at a predominately white Ivy League where a popular “African American themed” party takes place. Through their unique perspectives the film tackles race identity in “post-racial” America while weaving a universal story of forging one’s unique path in the world.

Is this film something you can see yourself watching? How much do you relate to the situations in the trailer?
