“Today I am here, I don’t know where I will be tomorrow. Maybe I will have been cut down for rituals, I just don’t know.” These were the words of Manyasi, an albino in Tanzania in the 58-minute documentary, ‘White & Black: Crimes of Color’, screened recently at the Life House, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The film is part of the campaign against the kidnap and murder of people living with albinism in Tanzania. Through its vivid display of severed body parts of albinos, ‘Black & White’ reveals the deep cruelty that exists in the hearts of men who allow fetish practices to lead them astray into evil.
