Yellow Fever
Generations of Black women confront their ideals of beauty, and ask what makes a little girl feel "uncomfortable" when she looks in the mirror. In this award-winning short documentary, Kenyan filmmaker Ng'endo Mukii, inspired by her interest in the concept of skin and race and what they imply; and in “the ideas and theories sown into our flesh that change with the arc of time”, explores African women's self-image. Through the use of memories, interviews; and mixed media, she describes their “almost schizophrenic pursuit of globalized beauty”.
