Yellowman (22 Nov – 2Dec)

Divided into five parts, Yellowman details the relationship between Eugene, a very fair-skinned black man, and Alma, a large dark-skinned woman.


Their story begins in their youth on the islands off the coast of South Carolina and ends after a brutal fight in the depths of New York city.


Alma and Eugene grew up together in the Deep South. As their friendship develops into something closer, they struggle to escape familiar definitions of blackness.


Amidst the legacy of Southern black poverty, the impact of the shade of their skin unearths unexpectedly powerful racial tensions.


Genesis Award winner Nancy Medina directs a Pulitzer Prize finalist described by Variety as “a celebration of young love and a harrowing study of smouldering domestic violence”.
