Dear White People

A satire about being a black face in a white place


Dear White People
This film takes a piercing at black/white relations and cultural differences in the USA. Set at a prestigious university, we follow a so-called 'biracial' student who is stirring things up with her radio broadcasts. A TV reality show decides to follow her story, which provides an opportunity for a black male student to get a job covering the debacle for the school's newspaper, even though he knows little of black culture.

108 minutes.
