Our Picks + The Imposter & Little White Lie

Monday 14 December 2020, by Abla Kandalaft, Coco Green

Before we introduce our picks, we quickly shoehorn in one last point about last week’s Three Identical Strangers...This week’s top picks include Aaron Sorkin’s historical legal drama The Trial Of The Chicago Seven, and Najwa Najjar’s Palestinian road trip festival hit Between Heaven And Earth.

We discuss the utterly bonkers documentary The Imposter, in which an Algerian-French young man in Spain claims to be a 16-year-old Texan, who’d been missing for 3 years, and Little White Lie, the story of director Lacey Schwartz who grew up in a white family and was not aware that she was a half black until she went to university and her mother came clean about her African American biological father. We explore the pitfalls of affirmative action and the somewhat problematic utilisation of a Black identity by someone who’d been raised as white.
