Part of Film 2018 series FilmAfrica 2018
Directed by Tseliso Monaheng & Lerato Mbangeni | 2017

Skin-bleaching—an increasingly popular trend in South Africa and across the world—is both a multi-billion dollar industry and a contentious issue fraught with racial, historical, political, and public health implications. In this probing documentary, directors Tseliso Monaheng and Lerato Mbangeni interweave psychology, anthropology, and personal, first-hand testimonies to shed light on a complex cultural phenomenon that affects millions of people in South Africa alone.

Q&A with co-director Lerato Mbangeni
