Fair not Fair

“Fair or Not?: The Snow White Complex” is a documentary about Eurocentric standards of female beauty that are held across most (post-Colonial) cultures.

This is the first film I ever attempted to make back when I was an undergrad at UC Berkeley (2003-07). Unfortunately I was never able to complete this project, but it is an issue I hold very close to my heart, so I figured I should just post it online anyway so that people can watch & discuss…

Some of the topics covered: Skin color preferences in relation to class/culture, the media’s role in exacerbating internalized racism, skin bleaching products, exoticism of dark-skinned women, and the phenomenon of tanning amongst White women
