BlackFest Festival 2021: Same But Different – Independent Film Screening

Friday 24 September 2021

BlackFest Festival 2021 Presents A Screening of Same But Different (An Independent Film by Anniwaa Buachie) At FACT Cinema


SUMMARY: There are many nuances to the black identity but only a few come to light. This has been shaped by the entertainment industry, the media. Hollywood has filtered our perception of what a black woman looks like, what she thinks, and feels.

For some women, this has opened the gateway into a community that may have been distant and unattainable, but for others, this has muted their stories and created a new narrative that is rendering their perspectives, to the point of extinction. This film documents a conversation between a mixed-race woman and an African-Black woman, exploring and highlighting their similarities and differences.

Ultimately there cannot be a change for or within the black community until we acknowledge ALL of those who feel invisible and marginalised, only then can change happen inside and out.
