Black in Tokyo was created with the intention of exposing people around the world to the black foreign experience of living in a homogenous country. Directed by Nigerian-American artist Amarachi Nwosu, the film follows five subjects, with origins ranging from West Africa to the U.S., narrating the different cultural challenges and opportunities of living in Tokyo, Japan. Brought to you by Melanin Unscripted which is a series started by the director aimed to uncover complex identities that are not generally projected in mainstream media. The main objective of Melanin Unscripted is quite similar to ours at ysdwysd, which is to inspire folks to pursue their passions regardless of race, sex, or background. Peep their latest documentary above. You start dying when you stop dreaming.
