Cinepoetics Lecture #4: Erica Carter: Spectres of colonial whiteness

"Look, a Negro":  so runs the exclamation from a white child that Fanon remembers as one impetus for investigations in his book Black Skin, White Masks into black bodies under white eyes—visible as an object among objects. The white body is invisible, a white ghost, and the unspoken norm. Film, by contrast, captures traces of white spectres, opening them to historical scrutiny, calling their descendants to account for colonial crimes. In her lecture, Erica Carter (King's College London) explores recent reckonings with white ghosts in postcolonial film. We will show LE MALENTENDU COLONIAL (Jean-Marie Teno, CMR/France/Germany 2004) prior to the lecture. (cs)
