White Balance


Latham Zearfoss | United States | 2018 | 9:45

This experimental documentary seeks out moments of cognitive dissonance around the multifaceted, liberal ideas of whiteness. Further, it questions how power circulates as ideology, via material and immaterial means. Paired with an unnerving original score, the camera lands on episodic vignettes that unpack white identity as a socially constructed set of power relations, and the color white as an aesthetic experience ranging from humdrum to stunning to repulsive.
