Black Sheep by Ed Perkins has been shortlisted in the Documentary Short Subject category for the 91st Oscars. The film took away three awards at ASFF 2018, receiving Best of Fest, Best Documentary and Northern Film School Award for Best Screenplay.
The powerful work follows the story of Cornelius Walker after the murder of Damilola Taylor in 27 November 2000. Challenging and timely, it explores personal experiences of racism in the UK, following Walker’s move from Peckham to a neighborhood in Essex.
