Watch Nollywood actor bring his A game to the table in White Colour Black, a film directed by British-Nigerian director, Joseph a. Adesunloye.
White Colour Black follows Leke (Dudley O’Shaughnessy), a mixed heritage man living in London . A successful photographer, Leke’s privileged lifestyle allows him to navigate his Black British identity largely on his own hedonistic terms. But when a message from Senegal calls him ‘home’, Leke must confront the psychological intricacies of his heritage and forge a new sense of self.
Moving from brooding London’s cityscapes to an almost trancelike stillness as Leke travels through to his Senegalese village in Popenguine, Adesunloye skilfully evokes the internal dichotomy Leke faces.
White Colour Black features Dudley O’Shaughnessy, Yrsa Daley-Ward and Wale Ojo.
