In connection with Feministisk festival (11-13 November), we screen a British documentary about the racism within the health care system against Black and POC health care workers, with a following talk including the director and some of the health care workers portrayed in the film.
Director: Ken Fero | Documentary | UK | 2022 | 58 min | English
Exposed is a groundbreaking documentary that combines the stories of 19 Black, brown and migrant nurses and midwives to speak about their powerful experiences of racism before and during the pandemic. The film was made as part of Nursing Narratives – Racism and the Pandemic, a research project that aims to shed light on experiences of Black, Asian and minority ethnic health care workers in the pandemic.
