A propos du projet
For PRISM Belgian lmmaker An van. Dienderen invited Brussels based Rosine Mbakam from Cameroon and Paris based Eléonore Yameogo from Burkina Faso to make a lm in which the differences in their skin color serves as a starting point to explore their experiences with the limitations of the medium. Photographic media are technologically and ideologically biased, favoring Caucasian skin. Such white-centricity means that the photographic media assume, privilege and construct whiteness. PRISM problematizes the objectivity of the camera and its inequality of power to tackle other inequalities in society based on skin color.
