The Psychosis of Whiteness

A new documentary film ‘The Psychosis of Whiteness’ sheds light on society's perceptions of race by exploring cinematic representations of the slave trade. The documentary takes an in-depth look at big budget films about the transatlantic slave trade, arguing that the films rewrite history and thus our collective memory and our understanding of race.

The screening of the film will be followed by a Q&A session with the film’s director and one of its writers, Dr Eugene Nulnan.

Dr Nulman is a Senior Lecturer in Sociology at Birmingham City University. He is the author of the book Climate Change and Social Movements and has published academic articles in Third World Quarterly, European Journal of Social Theory, Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability, Environmental Politics, and Media, Culture and Society. The Psychosis of Whiteness is his directorial debut.
