Artistic film about the prevalent norm of the Western white skin. By visualising the ‘colours’ white and nude in an alienating way, their invisible relationship with white man is made visible.

Is everybody equal in Western society? Or is a white skin the prevalent norm here? What do the ‘colours’ white and nude have in common? Both are dominant and often invisibly linked to white people. Artistic film that makes something invisible visible by visualising both tones in two panels, in an alienating way.
