Supermodel Naomi Campbell stars in photographer and filmmaker Nick Knight’s film. The film ends with the infamous supermodel firing two handguns. I love it. While Campbell’s violent past could make this film hilarious, the movie’s subject touches on a serious fashion issue. The film’s premise is racism in the fashion industry.
Lately, this seems to be a hot topic. From Italian Vogue’s all black issue to small forums, the industry is taking note of the color void. The silent film addresses the blunt nature of designers, advertisers, editors and agencies who denounce black models for employment. While the film is only two minutes long, it is powerful and resonate.
“By my own inaction, I am guilty of allowing racism to be normalized and accepted in this business. This has made my deeply sad and increasingly angry.” - Nick Knight
