Global racialisations - Q&A with directors (2021)

  • Global Racialisations
  • 1h 10m


Global Racialisations is a film strand that considers the material effects and shared histories of race/racism across geographies. The films offer a vantage point to think about how colonial and imperial rule produces related processes of racialisation that are linked to the spread of global capitalism and its exploitation of labor, land, and resources. However, each film also offers us an opportunity to engage with racialisation as a process that is shaped by specific ethnic, linguistic, economic, and gendered understandings of difference in particular places and times.

In this session curators Yasmin Fedda and Ethiraj Gabriel Dattatreyan are in conversation with the filmmakers to explore the themes of the strand.
