AFRAID OF DARK \ 1:13:23 min \ USA

Why is the world so afraid of dark? Presented at the Reel Sisters of the Diaspora Film Festival, Afraid of Dark is a remarkably insightful, serious and entertaining documentary about the misconceptions and stereotypes of Black men. This documentary offers a genuine look at Black men from the director's eyes in contrast to the outside world, thus revealing the beauty in diversified strength, leadership and challenges, that are too often distorted by outsiders, many times leading to loss of life.
