Black Sheep | Ed Perkins
Dir. Ed Perkins | UK, 2018
Black Sheep is a heart-breaking documentary exposing the face of modern-day racism in the UK. Following the murder of Damiola Taylor in 2000, Cornelius Walker and his family moved from London in search of a better life, only to be confronted by vicious and often violent attacks. In an attempt to adapt to his new surroundings, Cornelius recalls the measures he took to change himself in order to fit in.
Director Ed Perkins’ captured a truly dark yet undeniably important story. This emotive account was deserving of a triple win at the 2018 Aesthetica Short Film Festival as well as being nominated for and Oscar.
