FUCK WHITE TEARS
ANNELIE BOROS | South Africa, Germany 2016 | 26 Min. | OmeU
With the intent to make a film about the protest movement, Annelie Bros travels to Cape Town in South Africa. When she arrives, the students turn her away: they don't want her, as a white person, to make a film about this Black protest movement. The filmmaker wants to understand why and shows us a film of a film that she couldn’t make. This is about the centuries-old imbalance of power in South Africa, deep-rooted rascism, 20 years after the end of Apartheid, and ultimately film-making itself.
Annelie Boros, was born in 1991 in Munich, and has been studying 'Documentary Making' since 2012 at HFF München. Her film 'Mars Closer', that she made together with Vera Maria Brückner, was screened at more than 50 Festivals and won awards. At the moment she is working on her new documentary film about depression and the brain.
