Synopsis

"What is Black Guilt? I’ve often asked myself, why can't artist Kudzanai Chiurai be free to just paint flowers or some shit…?" In this film we question the responsibility of African artists in an ever more globalised universe, where we maybe find ourselves "playing catch up" to the West as opposed to following our own paths. Are we victims of our past, forever beholden to our so called arrested development, or is our superpower our burden?
