Director Statement

Covid and George Floyd had a huge negative affect on the psyche of people of colour. We attempt to understand what we can do to change the narrative around race and look at therapy as a solution.

We made this documentary in the middle of the pandemic, the drive to make this film was mainly because of the biased way the media dealt with issues within the black community.

We had no funding whatsoever but we really felt passionate about making sure our side of the story of the pandemic and how the death of George Floyd affected the black community.

It was tough primarily because so many people were afraid of meeting people they didn’t know and also all the protocols of temperature checks, hand washing, mask wearing and social distancing were still in place.

The team for this production consisted of 4 people, we did everything from editing, filming, sound, grading, photography, website creation to making the tea and cleaning, at times there was just two of us on set dealing with everything that was required for the day, it truly was a Herculean task.

Today we are still seeing the way people of colour are portrayed in the U.K. despite only making up less than 2% of the population the imagery for disease, covid and crime often uses people of colour the monkey pox issue which only depicted images of black people despite cases allegedly raging throughout communities that were not black tells us we still have a very long way to go.

We at Unfiltered are optimistic that highlighting social issues and challenges will eventually lead to permanent positive change and film is the right medium to do this, by highlighting the issues and looking for solutions we can make wider society understand and what’s needed to make our world a fairer and happier place for us all.
