The Psychosis of Whiteness


Not available in your country

The Psychosis of Whiteness is a documentary film that 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.

Brilliant analysis and facts. I’m was particularly interested in how the film displayed the legality and law of Britain and the role it plays in the psychosis of whiteness.
