PORCELAIN WHITE: THE CONVERSATION
A conversation across oceans on white heritage
Venuri Perera and Zwoisy Mears-Clarke, born oceans apart in former colonies of Britain, find that they have in common a ‘whitened’ inheritance. They were both brought up in the English-speaking middle class, which maintains certain practices adopted from the former colonial masters, that protect their social status. Conversing across continents, they probe their complicity. In this film, they unravel the complexities and limits of their inherited privilege as they inhabit neocolonial spaces.
