NATIONAL BLACKFACE DAY

Short Documentary / 2018 / 10’
A film by Luisa Dahringer 
a maffick.media production 

 

Dressing up in blackface once a year is an actual thing in the Netherlands. This year (2019) for the first time since its beginning, blackface has been forbidden on the nationally televised Christmas parade in the Netherlands BUT 59% of the Dutch still want to hold onto this tradition because of a twisted, nostalgic childhood connection... It might make it harder to admit but it does not make it any less racist 🤷‍♀️ Watch last years investigation here.
