The Thames Art Gallery in partnership with the Chatham-Kent Public Library presents Last Friday Features. Come to The Cultural Centre (Kiwanis Theatre) and screen a National Film Board video for free.

On Friday January 31 at 6:30 p.m. in the Kiwanis Theatre, 75 William Street North, Chatham we will be screening “Hue: A Matter of Colour”. The film runs 85 minutes and will open with a short film entitled “Black Soul”.

“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.
