“Black is…” is a film program inspired by the film “Black is… Black ain’t”. Just like the film, we want to highlight the different themes within the BIPOC community. The program exists of multiple shorts and one feature length film that covers topics within the community such as family, friends and sexuality. Part of the program consists of four shorts exploring these themes, with afterwards a panel talk.
