Whiteblackatcha

By October 16, 2012 Congratulations

With support from the Out There and Deadly emerging Indigenous filmmakers fund provided by Metro Screen in 2011, Grant Saunders has been able to co-write, direct, produce, co-edit, sound design and mix this TV Comedy Pilot called Whiteblackatcha. The show uses subversion and satire to breakdown the stereotypes of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people. It aims to endear mainstream audiences to Aboriginal people by demonstrating that we as a nation are capable, in this post PC era, of laughing at ourselves, while critiquing the anomalies of contemporary Australian society. The show may be deemed controversial and may even upset some viewers but a show like this is long awaited and necessary for a real public discourse on the topic of racism and Aboriginality.
