Watch Hue: A Matter of Colour - Alternative Versions.
This film may have had strong intentions to raise awareness about
colorism, prejudice based on skin color within/between racial groups,
however, I believe it fell short of that aim. The interviews that
spanned across many difficult national boundaries were incredibly
compelling, but the film did little to no justice to these individual
experiences. Instead it was a dry cut and pasting of emotional stories
awkwardly juxtaposed with the director's family vacation to Brazil and
his own experiences dealing with colorism. The personal is always
political, so if the aim of the film was to only showcase personal
stories, then maybe it succeeded. If the aim was to start meaningful
dialogue among people of color to help tackle the nuances of this
prejudice, then this did very little for me. To honor people's
experiences and start necessary conversations, the director should have
spent significant time on contextualizing these stories in a broader
setting that explained what is actually happening. Also, the
comparative study was poorly managed and while the experiences of
albinism in Tanzania were certainly compelling, their relationship to
colorism was completely glossed over and in the end, did not make much
sense. "Hue" was a film presented as an exposé of sensationalist
stories for a white audience and can have the dangerous impact of
enabling folks to think there is a sharp distinction between racism and
colorism and that colorism is something inherent within people and
their cultures. It is not inherent in people, it came out of somewhere,
and just by focusing on the "personal" we forget how much the
"political" plays a role in allowing this to exist in the first place.
I was expecting so much from this film and I was utterly disappointed.
