BFI: Swimming in Your Skin Again: Shorts Programme explore Black Beauty on Screen

+ Q&A with directors Baloji (Congo), Abdou Cisse, Amira Tajdin (Kenya) and Rhea Dillon.

Where does black beauty reside? Is it in the Florida swamps with a spiritual siren, in an artist’s studio in Lagos, with a wash-to-style hairdo, or on the block with the mandem? What do you see? These films offer studies of black beauty on screen, from a set of transatlantic audio-visual auteurs who discard the rulebook altogether.
