50 Shades of Black (Girl)

Synopsis

50 Shades of Black (Girl) follows the perpetually anxious Hanna in the aftermath of being mistaken for Maya, a successful black musician, at a gig one evening.

The experience sparks Hanna’s curiosity as to what else she could get away with by pretending to be another person of colour.

With the assistance of her best friend Bonnie, the two women embark on a journey that sees their lives entwine with a number of other women of colour. It's through this experiment that Hanna and Bonnie explore their connection to their identity as black women, and what it means to be black in Australia.
