Fall into the Sky is an expressive short documentary that experiments with mixed media methods and hybrid modes in its examination of colourism, afrophobia and xenophobia in South Africa. With a grounding in principles of feminist action research, which emphasise praxis, reflexivity and positionality, the film examines the multiplex dimensions of the phenomena. It aims to deepen conversations about colourism, afrophobia and xenophobia through the perspectives of outspoken black women, coloured women and women of colour including scholars & performers.
Fall into the Sky is a UCT Film Production.
