A documentary that weaves together personal journeys, historical facts and expert analysis to show the world through the eyes of those touched by the issue of “colourism”.
Hue, by renowned director and cinematographer Vic Sarin, is a personal, heartfelt investigation into the history and often tragic effects of colourism, the phenomenon whereby people within the same ethnic group discriminate against each other based on differences in skin tone. Sarin travels to countries in Asia, South America, the Caribbean, South Asia and Africa to discuss this complex cross-cultural social issue with individuals whose lives it affects, including a Filipina entrepreneur whose business has flourished within the billion-dollar skin-whitening industry. Hue leads viewers on a thoughtful and surprising journey to the heart of an insidious social issue that is anything but black and white.
