Bill Duke‘s powerful documentary tackling America’s issue of ‘colorism’ in the African American community Dark Girls, screened at the Pan African Film Festival last night. Tambay, who attended the screening, gave us a few updates from the Q&A session after the film.
According to Duke, Dark Girls should be out on DVD in the next 90 days, although, no specific date was given.
Duke has two other projects currently in the works as well, more like second and third parts to Dark Girls.
The first is Yellow Brick Road; the documentary will look at the the colorism issue from the fairer skinned woman’s point of view. The second part, titled What Is A Man, will explore what masculinity and manhood is, from the beginning of humanity to the present.
Interesting enough… these are very relevant issues. I’m definitely curious and looking forward to these follow-up projects. Given all the conversations we’ve had in the past year regarding Dark Girls, I’m sure there will much more to debate about and ponder upon, especially once we get more information, clips etc.
Tune-in to our podcast today at 4pm EST; Tambay should be calling in the latter part of the show to give us his thoughts on the films screened at PAFF including Dark Girls!
