Yellow Fever

First, a note from the filmmaker (Ng'endo Mukii) in her own words:

I am interested in the concept of skin and race, and what they imply; in the ideas and theories sown into our flesh that change with the arc of time. I believe skin and the body, are often distorted into a topographical division between reality and illusion. The idea of beauty has become globalised, creating homogenous aspirations, and distorting people’s self-image across the planet. In my film, I focus on African women’s self-image, through memories and interviews; using mixed media to describe this almost schizophrenic self-visualization that I and many others have grown up with.

Titled Yellow Fever, the mixed-media piece (Hand-drawn animation, computer animation, pixilation, and live action), it also happens to be Ng'endo's thesis film, made this year, at the Royal College of Art in London. 

It's a short film which is now traveling the film festival circuit.
