New article series by the Finnish Film Foundation: Diversity in the film industry
In this new series, different writers take a look at diversity and equality in the Finnish film industry. In the first article, actor, activist, poet and screenwriter Laura Eklund Nhaga writes from an anti-racist perspective about the screen industries. The article series is in Finnish and English.
"In order to practice anti-racism in the film industry, we must forget the idea that its blinding whiteness is a natural state. In fact, diversity is more natural than 99% whiteness. A brown body must not be the strange other, it needs to be normalized and become part of the standard."
