Yellow Fever

Ng’endo Mukii
UK 2012 / 7’

She is chocolate and I am toffee, claims a young female character, indicating in this perverse way the meaning of race in the definition of human being. Yellow Fever describes the importance of skin colour and consequences arising out of it. The Kenyan-born director combines classic animation with dance scenes, offering a curious genre synthesis.
