Successful young photographer, Leke, lives a privileged and hedonistic lifestyle in London, full of late night parties and clandestine encounters. Yet, despite his large circle of friends, he feels alone and at odds with the world. When he receives a phone call, Leke must return to Senegal after an absence of many years, triggering a journey to rediscover a family, and culture, long suppressed. Nigerian-British filmmaker Joseph A. Adesunloye’s debut feature is brimming with subtle intricacies of the Black British, mixed race experience, where questions of identity, place and belonging are omnipresent. Featuring a beautifully subdued central performance from Dudley O’Shaughnessy, White Colour Black’s truest feat is the extraordinary cinematography, reflecting the world through the eyes of one of its many lost souls.
Eligible for the Film Africa 2016 Audience Award
