Earlier this week, the world commemorated the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, marked each year on March 21. We’re stretching the festivities out a bit with this week’s Friday film pick, a short satircal work by Cal Garingan entitled Jaded. This sharp and funny mockumentary uses role reversal to illustrate the realities of overt and systemic racism in the workplace.
We first shared this film with you last year when we took part in the NFB’s Work For All campaign. They just put the finishing touches on a DVD compilation of the films — we received an advance copy in the mail yesterday — and we’ll be sure to let you know when they’re available to purchase.
