Dear White People

A ‘satire about being a black face in a white place’, Dear White People follows a group of African American students as they navigate campus life and relationships in a predominantly white college. Written, directed and produced by Justin Simien, it won the Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent at the Sundance Film Festival.

“Seeming to draw equal measures of inspiration from Whit Stillman and Spike Lee, but with his own tart, elegant sensibility very much in control, Simien evokes familiar campus stereotypes only to smash them and rearrange the pieces,” a review in the New York Times reads.

Dear White People will be released on October 17.
