PRISM (2021) NYFF 2021

This is look at how racism is inherently part of the film industry since all of the technical calibrations are based on white skin.

In many ways similar to CODED BIAS about how facial recognition software has been trained to see white faces but not those of people of color. As important as the film’s discussion  is it didn’t click with me as deeply as CODED. It’s purely a matter of the presentation, which for a good portion of its running time is a record of a zoom roundtable. There is nothing wrong with that, and the information presented is vital to our discussions of race, but for me I tend to stop watching Zoom panels and just listen. Call me an old fogie, but I would have liked more of the demonstrations.

Definitely worth a look.
