Black Stains Short Film, Audience FEEDBACK from July 2020 Experimental Festival

BLACK STAINS, 14min, USA, Experimental/Dance

Directed by Tiffany Rhynard

Black Stains addresses the systemic pattern of racial profiling by the police. Inspired by the personal experiences of choreographer Trent D. Williams, Jr., the film illustrates the reality of being black in the United States. Through interviews with men of varying ages and robust athletic dancing, the film persistently asks the question: why do we not see black men as human?
