WHITE GOLD is an truly great thriller about a young woman with albinism who is desperate to stop a man from killing her and using her for magical purposes.
In many parts of Africa people with albinism are considered magically powerful, They are often killed and cut up to be used in magical rituals and potions. Its a horrifying practice that doesn't seem to be going away. That fact allows for a wicked sting in the tail of this great film.
I don't know what to say other than this film kicks ass. Currently hoping for a slot on the Oscar short list I would be kind of upset if it doesn't make it since it really is that good.(And it would make a killer feature) Actually it's better than most feature thrillers I've seen in the last year
WHITE GOLD is screening at Halifax Black Film Festival on the 23rd of February and at The Santa Fe Film Festival 17-21st February.
